Last week our class visited a local park and we all enjoyed painting the beautiful Sonoma County landscape.
I concentrated on a small scene I have often admired but never painted. I had some palette trouble but liked the composition.
My wonderful instructor suggested I take the above painting and do it several more times, each in a different palette.
Now that was fun.
Quick, experimental and such great results.
I cannot decide on a favorite. Upper left is the first one and I like the palette but the barn is askew a bit.
Number two has the fun violet sky and the barn is more grounded. That's a good thing.
Number three in the lower left is fun. Fun always works.
The last one on the lower right shows that I was tiring. And yet, look at the kind of surreal atmosphere. That old barn just looks like it could fall right down.
What a great learning experience.
These are all 6" x 6"
The first three are on Senso canvas paper.
Number 4 is on a board.
All are oil.
I invite you to leave a comment. It would be fun to know your favorites. We all respond differently, thank goodness.
