Possibilities


Return to Harbes Farm. I have been so influenced by Brian Ryder and Edward Seago as you all know.

Edward Seago created paintings not only from plein air, but he would add things that weren't there. Hence the tree and the winding road. So this is just a study for a future oil, once the actual composition is decided.




This little boat sketch is also another study for a future oil.

The rest are pen and ink studies, using my new Rotring Artpen, I love it and oh what fun it is to play with new art supplies.

Happy Painting to All and enjoy your weekend.

  1. Hi Joan!... A nice collection of plein air information! Collectively... your studies can be infused as you wish... into your studio work at will... or on site as well... to create... just as you suggested - "Possibilities."

    Good stuff!

    Good Painting!
    Warmest regards,
    Bruce
