Warmer Winter Morning Plein Air, acrylic with palette knife



                                          Acrylic Plein Air with palette knife, 6x6"



 I got up early and went out plein air yesterday morning...yes, Watchers, this one was completed actually outside, not huddled inside looking out a window.  The temps are up and my acrylics (not to mention myself) can be outside again!

I see I am getting some glare from the scan, perhaps due to having used some gloss medium in with the mix of mediums I am using.  I've been experimenting with mediums to use with the acrylics and palette knife, to give the paints more body.  Also, in the painting, the sky is much grayer than the blue my monitor is showing.  You would think that would be an easy fix in Photoshop Elements, but so far it is not!  It probably means the rest of the colors are off, too. 

Have a great day everyone...

Love this one. And continuing to send prayers for Claire. My sister lives near Elk Mountain Scenic Highway. Looks like you are painting a gorgeous area.
