art & nature summer painting


This weekend I took some artists out for evening plein air sessions. 

May, remains of the day, oil on canvas, 30x30in, 2012, available for sale

I demonstrated how to work right over an un-loved painting-something I have done through out the years with many un-loved paintings.

The image above was rendered over the below under painting and I quite like the added texture.

Here is the hated painting-overworked and contrived. 

I am much happier with this but will re-examine with a fresh eye in a few days, although I feel the composition is sound and I like the overall feel of the work.  

*If you live local and love art & nature, please join us for evening plein air sessions throughout the summer. Just contact me and I will be happy to send you details. Right now the weather is ideal for painting outside as bugs are minimal, light is beautiful, and the air is heady with the scent of all things growing!
