While waiting for the sun to shine, it was necessary to resort to partially paint from a photo and sketch of Stonybrook. Today was to be a plein air painting day at Smiths Point , I opted not to go. There is so much to learn from studio painting, that can be applied to plein air. In studying Robert Brindley, I did this on textured mdf board, using just the primary colors red, yellow and blue. It just felt so good to be back painting in oils. Happy painting everyone.
