"Marsh Reflections", plein air oil painting, 9 x 12"
$575.00 framed in a dark plein air frame, FREE S&H
This is the last plein air piece I did before going off to Diamond Willow. Since then I have spent 3 days painting there and then 4 days painting and hiking at Lake O'Hara, and yes, the weather was perfect for almost all of it. I got back on Friday night with tired legs from all the vertical at O'Hara, and then on Saturday my hubby and I and a bunch of friends hiked up Burstall Pass, which was equivalent (according to my hubby) to 3-4 times up and down the Calgary Tower and walking from my house to get there. Needless to say, my legs were rubber and I fell into bed when we got home, and I didn't post, but I know you will forgive me. I am here now, and have a bunch of paintings from my past week to share with you in the coming week, so stay tuned.
Workshop Lesson #16: This will be my last workshop lesson, but I will continue to give tips and helpful techniques as I continue to learn and grow as an artist, so I hope you will continue to find this blog helpful in your own artistic journey. The last lesson is that confidence in painting shows! So make confident marks that are as right as you can make them at the time. You can change it if it turns out to be wrong, just proceed with a light touch with the succeeding layers to avoid losing the freshness of the plein air strokes. And finally, don't play with the brush strokes you put down in the field before you step back to see if they read already. I am always surprised at how distance can clarify things.
