Marsh Grasses Plein Air...wintry slush..Plein Air Oil Painting
9"x 12" oil...on pumice/gesso panel
available to purchase...(Contact me...)
Last week, it was golf in short sleeves, tonight
it was long underwear, a thermal waterfowler's coat,
wool fingerless gloves, two hats, and my winter
boots!!! We got nailed with 6-9 inches of the white
stuff overnight...and one-half hour north of us they
got a foot!!! Yikes. Here you see my truck parked,
and I walked across to paint the same area of marsh
reeds I painted last week...
there was a slushy surface to the water, offering
some nice color of neutrals...hints of greens,
some violets...very lovely...
Here you see my set up, and I'm near finished
at this point. Just to give you an idea of the
On the palette above you see the beauty of oils allowing
work in quite inclement weather. Note the beaded up
water on the palette...as it was a drizzle/sleet for much of
the time painting!
I had to end before I wanted to...as the water was building
up making it a bit more difficult to maneuver about. I'll
look it over and perhaps will take just a bit of small work
on the reeds and then sign it...
As always, clicking on the images brings them up larger.
