Paint paint paint!
Well, it's to the cave for me all weekend, working on a Septenber exhibit. As I mentioned in my previous post, I have six plein air paintings I am using as reference to make six larger pieces.
This is my first one.The study is in the prior post. Contrary to my original plan, it is not high key. I preferred to painting a local tone approach, since it was an overcast day and lent itself to it already. I think the drawing is there now and I like it much better than the small one. But it seems dreary or lacking something. Any ideas?
My name is Jeanne Echternach and I am an artist.I've been painting for just about as long as I can remember. My blog is a forum to discuss painting and the whole messy process of creating art. I love to paint and love to talk about it too, so join in the conversation and have fun!
