|Plein Air Landscape Sketch #1, 2013, Original oil, alkyd on panel, 4"x6"|
Ahhhhh, September in New Mexico—a perfectly lovely time of year to be outdoors, painting in plein air.
Over the past few weeks, I've taken to painting in the late afternoon, as the shadows and clouds provide more dramatic light and color variations. I'm working small (4" x 6") and keeping it loose. This is a view of the Sandia Mountains, painted from Elena Gallegos Open Space in Albuquerque.
Thanks for visiting my blog and hope your week is off to a great start.
