"Aspen Light", plein air acyrlic painting

"Aspen Light", 9 x 12", plein air acrylic painting

This was the last one of the day on my plein air acrylic day. The light was going fast, and so was I! Acrylics are very nice to not make mud, and the corrections are a breeze. I painted all day with my hand-made stay wet palette and the paint is still wet in the box several days later. For a thrifty artist like me, it means a lot. This was done on birch plywood sealed with amber shellac, my new best favorite surface for both oils and acrylics, using hogs hair bristle brushes mostly.
