Plein Air Landscape Sketch #6, 2013. Original oil on gessoed panel, 4"x6"
Knowing that the leaves won't stay on the trees forever, I was itching to get out to plein air paint but had commitments for paintings that required time in my studio all week. Finally, I broke away on a Sunday afternoon and headed for the Sandia Mountains. I got all set up, ready to paint, and realized I had forgotten my paint brushes at home. Ugh!
Going back home was out of the question. The daylight would be gone by the time I made the trip there and back. I scrounged around in my car and came up with one #8 flat brush, a Q tip…and my finger…just enough to get this landscape sketch "painted."
When I got home, I cleaned up a few edges and added a few details. Not bad. I may try this "technique" again.
Thanks for taking a moment to view my blog. Have a great day.
