“Indiana Overlook” 9×12”
This Fall I visited Indiana.
“Whitewater River” 8×10”
The light changed during the time I was painting this one, from partly sunny to cloudy. I was standing on sand bars, but as I painted I kept adding more white water.
8×10” acrylic and canvas panel.
It was cloudy and still but what we see is just a starting point. Sometimes unexpected result come from Plein Air painting. This photo shows how I embellished the scene. Mainly I added a field beyond the horizon for more interest, more elements that are simplified in the foreground. I waited for a sky I wanted to paint, I normally do that first.
With all the rain we’ve has lately, Thunderheads are on the rise. With this one I decided to try some oils again. I will do a bigger one in the future. 6×8” oil on Canvas
8”x10” Acrylic on canvas.
On a cool dreary day, I painted along the shore of the river.
