Play By the Wall
I think I am finally over the flu, although there are symptoms that appear to be very fond of me and want to stick around for a while. But, I went out today! I am itching to start new projects and paint up a storm, so I think all systems are 'Go!" The paintings I am posting this week are ones I did in Sept., plein air. I really hit the darks hard in these. I think that is because I was painting in bright light, as opposed to painting in artificial light inside. Since I am a neophyte at this process, I think my methods should improve with time. I don't think I will be like Eric Tobin or Peter Huntoon though, who paint outside all winter long. I was drawn to the bright light on the field behind the wall, and the setting which suggests children playing.
