Bear Creek Haze 9x12 oil pleinair
After speaking with Dan Schultz at the Art and Wildflower festival, in Breckenridge, I have changed my palette. He suggested that to move out of a plateau, that I have been stuck in, that I stop using my crutches, which are Sap Green and Burnt Umber. This has definitely shifted my thinking and will make painting a little more challenging. The greens that I use now are now a lot different.
Also had some time left over to do a quick sketch of fellow artist Shari. What fun. Scrubbing paint in about a half an hour and incorporating figures. I have painted figures in Pastel and WC and at the ASLD but have felt intimidated in the plein air arena. This could become a regular thing. Fun, Fun Fun.
