Rat River Plein Air...by Camp 5
9"x 12" oil on pumice board
I was in the finishing stages of this plein air tonight when
my son Jason called from Chicago, and I told him I must
have used a bit more pumice in the ground on this one as
the paint was tacking up quite fast...in some regards it
was like I was painting with pastel or something.
Not a complaint, just a different drag to the paint.
I also set my palette up with a split-complementary palette,
blue-green my dominant, orange plus red...and white.
Was a lovely night to be painting, and try to restore some
self-dignity after not the best day strikin' balls on the links.
