In the past week I managed to get several more paintings done. The two small pieces were done outside, as I promised myself I would do more of. Yay for me! Spent a day painting with a good friend last week. We started out at Parker River National Wildlife Refuge in the morning. Got some warm-ups done in my sketchbook but nothing that I wanted to consider for posting. After a yummy lunch we moved on to Maudsley State Park in Newburyport where I created Foggy Hillside and Nearing the End.
American Pipit is after a photograph by Bill Gette, Director of the Joppa Flats Audubon Center. He has graciously given me permission to work from his wonderful bird photos. This is the first of many, I hope.
Both Foggy Hillside and Nearing the End were done on the same exact spot looking towards the same patch of woods; Foggy Hillside to the left and Nearing the End to the right. It wasn't actually foggy out but it's what I felt as I progressed through the piece. I love them both, as they each have qualities I seek with the medium.
