There were more "assignments" our teacher, Richard McKinley, gave us at a workshop a few years ago. One was to paint the same painting with different lighting and atmosphere. So, I did that here. I looked at my field study from the other day of the desert buttes and invented a southwestern sunset sky. This was fun. I got to use colors from my pallette that are different from what I'm used to.
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!
