This little painting was a study in texture and complementary colors. I have discovered that playing around with styles and colors is easier in the studio. Then if I wish, I can go out and employ this to my plein air painting.
Fall is (almost) in the air. Still a little warm, it was in the 90's this weekend, but great weather for a paintout. I visit this area due to it's open spaces so my little nearly blind girl can roam safely. She likes to make sure I'm Ok.
A cold front came in on Saturday, temps dropping over 20 degrees, perfect for plein air painting.
I grabbed my painting gear and my little shadow, Stella, and headed out. I ended up in a field down a dirt road and painted near the tree line so as to block the wind. ( I neglected to carry a jacket and wore only a short sleeve shirt ). I LOVE FALL!
