All in a days work
8x10 oil study. Thank you Vic Errington for introducing me to Brian Ryder's dvds. Today I began using his technique. Yesterday it was 2hrs. watching this wonderful artist demonstrate his plein air painting.
I was so eager to start. First the under-painting, the sketch, the layering in color. This is as far as managed to get done.
First is was a sketch using my water wash graphite pencil, then I proceeded in using a pen and ink and watercolor. Once I knew what I wanted the fun began.
By no means is this complete, still needs so much more work. It amazing what a grandma can go when the little ones aren't visiting.
Next week will be a busy week. I do have lots of work that needs completion. But it is so much fun.
Have a great weekend everyone.
