Observations and thoughts about the fine art of painting
Saturday, September 24, 2011
I painted this about two years ago in water color and en plein air (painted on location) in farm country outside of Sacramento, California. Painting en plein air is not my forte, but this one, I think, came out OK. These are animal feed bins.
yes,,,I´d say it is "ok".....you make me laugh:) I love the foreground...I mean I see the feedbins first but then when I travelled around the piece ,,,wow, what a foreground....
So beautiful, David! Who would have thought silos could be so beautiful? Oh to have your watercolor ability. I really need to loosen up!
Wonderful job on this, David. I can tell exactly what they are. You captured the aluminum structures beautifully.
Cynthia, the foreground is my favorite. Glad you appreciate that part. Thanks!
Autumn, "loose...a simple word that can always be a challenge. I will soon be posting many more loose watercolors that I hope will put me further down the road to looseness and watercoloring virtuosity. We artists must always challenge ourselves.
Thanks, Carol. Those structures were fun to paint and without getting trapped into too much of that corrugation.
What?! You ROCK Plein Aire, David!
Dana. Look familiar? I can almost taste your olives!
