This weekend I went to my first Cincinnati Paint Out.
The setting was a historic German Town sponsored by the Woman’s Art Club. This group was founded in 1892, originally because the Cincinnati Art Club excluded Woman. Today neither club excludes genders.
I’m practicing my trees. We will be moving to an area with more hills and trees. Cincinnati here I come! This is why my blog has been quiet, moving is too much work!
Now available at The Daily Paintworks
I went to our Nature Park to do a little plein air watercolor painting. I wanted to steak out the locations for our Frost Fest Plein Air Outing this weekend. I will probably do an acrylic painting on Saturday. It will be nice this weekend too, but hopefully the snow won’t be all melted.
5″x8″ moleskin watercolor sketchbook.
“Valley of Enemy Creek” 30″x48″ Stretched Canvas
Although I will probably see little touches of strokes I want to add, I am finished, fin! Although I need to sign and paint the gallery edges which are 1.5″ depth.
Time to open a bottle of wine! Cheers!
I thought I would keep working on trees now and then. It’s similar to studying the figure, except they vary more, and have a more random element added to them, but they do have limbs. This is the first step of the underpainting.
Now I’ve added the clumps of leaves. The underpainting helps me work out the shapes, and negitive space.
