The sun was almost directly overhead while I painted this. It visually flattened things out. I had to push the values somewhat and rely more on color to define the subjects. Every painting day outside is a learning experience. 8x10
I've painted on the side all my life. In March of 2005 I started painting full time. This internet diary keeps track of my progress, particularly with the smaller paintings from life I do each week. Unless noted, all the paintings posted on this blog are for Sale. You can contact me at CLAW4JC@aol.com for pricing and billing information.
