Plein Air 21 & 22

I have been looking forward to going out painting in the rose garden since last November, and today i went! Probably I should have gone last week, there were roses out but they were definitely past their peak.

Here is the first painting, I didn't quite capture the "look" I was going after, but it was still fun. :)

Then I found a really cool tree and decided to paint it. It is nice to stand barefoot in thick grass and paint. As I was setting up my tripod, a storm approached but luckily I brought my umbrella. I figured I would be painting longer than the rain would last, and I was right! It is a good thing i use oil paint and not anything water-based!

I am going back tomorrow.

Cadmium Green Pook

It is November 21, 2017 and because of a conversation last night about Gamblin cadmium green I discovered a painting never made it to my blog from 2010.
This is a split comp painting of Carey's cat. I gave her the painting.

Carey took this picture. I could dig mine up but this is good enough.
