"Forest Vignette" Albert Handell workshop, Day 4 late in the day
4:00 pm is a pretty time to paint. The light comes through the trees at an angle. This was done again by paint-along method. This time, I was directly behind Albert and actually could not see what he was looking at, so I just looked at his painting and tried to copy it as he went. Some of my pastel colors did not match, so I had to blend two together to try to get the same color.
This was a painting done in a vignette style - where the painting doesn't go out to ever corner and some of the paper shows around the edges.
Not bad, if I say so myself! I think I'm getting it!
Welcome to my art blog! This is where I share my explorations and learning experiences in pastel, watercolor and oil painting. I have had this blog for about six or more years. I am currently entering many national and regional juried art shows. I have a website and sell my work from there as well. I started a group called Reno Tahoe Plein Air Painters a year ago and it has grown to about 40 active painters! Each year brings new challenges and exciting opportunities. I have made many friends among other art bloggers and enjoy visiting their blogs. I hope you enjoy your visit here, and click on the links to my website and the plein air painters to see more!
