Well, it has been quite a while and I have been painting regularly so I have a backlog to share! Quite a few paintings from the summer were painted plein air. I so enjoy painting outdoors and the challenges of expressing myself quickly so that I can capture the scene and the light before it changes too much.
This one was painted on Arches Oil Paper which is fun to work on. The texture of the paper makes the finished piece looks a bit like an oil pastel but it was painted with oil paints and brushes. See the set up below.
I am so spoiled living in such a beautiful place. Looks like I had already put away my brushes when I took this picture but you get the idea. The actual very warm tone of the arbutus trunks doesn’t show very well in the photo unfortunately.
Tom has been very busy lately with a variety of projects so for now I will be posting sans poetry.
