|Plein Air Acrylic Palette Knife painting, 6x8"|
Yes, it's quite wintery here now, but we are taking a stroll backwards through the seasons here at Paint Like Nobody's Watching. Painting #1 for the 30 in 30 Challenge was the Christmas season in January, now here we are in Autumn. Why Autumn? This is the painting I left off with when I got the call from the Woolworth Walk gallery that there was an opening there for me.
I had gone plein air painting over two lunch hours for this one--one 40 minute session and one 20 minute session. It needed some finishing up in the studio that I never got to, since I got so busy after that call. Basically, I needed to get the sky holes out of the mountain!
So, if one of my themes is to finish unfinished paintings...here you go! I actually did this last night, but it was too wet and I was too tired to scan it then. But the good news is, I am actually on track with two paintings in two days. I think the scan is a little blurry because of all the texture holding part of the image further from the scanner. If any of you are more technically minded that I am, feel free to let me know if that is correct.
Working on this last night reminded me how much I enjoyed using the palette knife with my acrylics and how I had intended to do more. GREAT way to work plein air with limited time, as you can change colors so quickly.
Thanks for looking, and enjoy the challenge, everyone...
