|Forest Trees 10x6 oil on panel sold|
The camp spot was in a nice spot right next to the river and covered in shade by huge Big Leafed Maples. I highly recommend this spot for a group, especially if it is a hot summer weekend!
We had fun around the campfire at night and I got better aquainted with several new painter friends.
Every evening I went out to the same spot on the river and worked on a larger plein air painting. I used my french easel and prepared an 18x18 canvas. I video taped each progression of the painting. Interestingly this painting, even after I got back and worked on it in the studio, never worked out in my view and I ended up painting "Yellow House" (back a few posts) over it! I will post these videos for your viewing pleasure...=] In retrospect I wish there was more of my actual brush painting of the piece but at least you can see how it progressed and get a sense of location.
