Inspired by Paul Bachem. My studies has taken me to a fork in the road. Do I continue to depend on digital photos taken during my plein air trips last year or do I simply work from memory or my plein air sketches.
Paul is one of the gifted artist I follow. The list is quite long and I am always in awe of the their work. Paul writes in his blog that he works on location and when the weather doesn't cooperate he paints a still life. Bruce Sherman works outdoors in all kinds of weather.
I made a promise to work only from life. This is a painting I just started today, it is a 16x20 on mdf board. Which was primed with Brian Ryders recipe of pink and raw sienna mixed with gesso and spackle. Using a previous sketch and little from my memory of what was seen last year, I began playing with the application of paint. My work will probably be very redundant until the weather improves. Happy Painting Everyone.
