"Sunflowers" Plein air paintings by Robin Weiss



I took my student, Mike, out to Leigh's flower garden for some plein air painting. We were using the three color palette,  Ultramarine Blue, Quin Red and Hansa Yellow.

 
 One of the challenges we talked about was simplifying your subject
and creating a good design.
 If you live in the Northwest and would like to see the Knowles Studio for yourself, November would be a great time to do that!  Arts in the Woods Studio Tour is always the second week in November. This year it falls on the 11th, 12th and 13th of November. The stunning Knowles Studio will be decked out with new and exciting art work for this three day event. I would love to see you there!
