Would you like to see My latest Oil Plein-air?
I will just do this quickly--I got to go out one afternoon with Oil painter, Ray Freeman just before our most recent snow. It was a sunny PM, and we just went up above the ranch, under the trees and in the sagebrush. As usual, I had a hard time settleing on a subject to paint, but then, the subject is always the light---So, I looked at the afternoon light. Ray was also impresssed by the late PM sun-rays. This is what I came up with. I did paint on a small 9 x12 canvas board by Blick--with a raw sienna toned gesso over it. I like that very much, and the paint didn't soak in as fast. Now I have 3 attempts! and am very into do more. Today I got a goose-down set of bib-coveralls for cold days! Imagine. A cousin passed them on, and tho they are very large, they should work.
Snow expected again tommorrow so I will do some drawing and pastles in doors. ' till next time!!!
