Looking Upstream

IMG_0339We had a stretch of nice weather on the Oregon coast recently. To change things up, I’ve been starting plein air pieces on these nice days. I’m a slowish painter, so I finish them in my studio. When I’m on location painting I learn so much about color, and when I return to my studio I have the time to think through how brushwork should be layer down.

One nice aspect about painting on wood is that I didn’t need the lower section of this art to make a good composition, so I’ll cut it off. You can see the piece simoultaneously in a rough state and a finished one. The rough area won’t be there much longer…chop, chop.
