5"x 7" plein air study...

Threw my plein air gear in my car as
I headed out of town to Green Bay today,
for tomorrow's GB Packer game. In case
I saw something that caught my eye to
set up and paint.

Took some photos as well, and figured
this color study might lead to some
other experimentations.

I've been admiring your work for a while and meaning to comment. This one really caught my eye. Great colors! I love your loose paint handling.

Hi Larry,

This just has a really, really nice feeling to it overall. Reads well, colors are just right, love the dappled shadows. Great job!

Larry Seiler said...

appreciate hearing good things as it reads, coming from both of you. I had an idea in mind..which is happening more and more of late painting on location. I see it finished before I begin...and that perhaps comes of experience, but also helps in the daring or attack of the work.

Its a bit frustrating when it doesn't exactly come as you envisioned it...but its better perhaps to see the work hours or a day later. I like it better now seeing it the next day.

thanks much..appreciate your taking time to comment.

I like it too, kisses from Chicago! Sorry, I had to. :) No but seriously, I like it, mostly because it reminds me of home, sometimes I really miss Wisconsin.

Larry Seiler said...

I can't imagine Wisconsin in my rear view mirror unless it were to someplace like Alaska!!! 8^)

Just gorgeous. I can feel the sun and smell the leaves.

I love the cripness of the colors you've chosen. Everything about this painting is great, from the paint application to the light depicted.

Luis and Cheryl....much appreciated.

This spot caught my eye....I'm glad I was able in paint to do some justice, enough to catch a few eyes! So grateful you folks were kind enough to take a moment and comment.

peace

It's great to get out while the weather is still acceptable, but I have seen that you brave worse elements too. This one definitely could be the study for a larger version.

Sorry about the end of the game...

thanks James...
yeah, I like the seasonal changes...and did my share of ice fishing, hunting and so forth. Thus, in my mind I simply think if a couple guys can stand on a frozen lake with winds crossing them staring at tip ups or jigging, heck...I can paint. Not really any big deal. The oils have to be made agreeable to work in such conditions and the copal medium I use fits that bill well.

A small pocket heater for when fingers get a bit tingly...but otherwise the value changes, the neutrals, light...are quite intriguing in the winter. Coldest I've withstood thus far has been a minus 13 degrees. Relative really to what you get used to. No big deal for me...

take care...thanks for the comments...yeah, watching the coache's show the next day...the front lineman let Favre down when it mattered. Young...building and growing. Always a better day around the corner.
peace
