Adjusting to the new “studio”

December 5, 2011

Trying the french easel on the tabletop.  I like this better than the other tabletop easel.  There’s a place for brushes, a  palette, paint, and my little plein air water bucket.  It will come along with time.  By using this easel, I can easily put everything away pretty quickly, yet still have what I  need when I’m ready to paint.  And it’s easily transported outside.

Here’s what I’m working on.  It’s 8×10, gouache, of course…

When we were out and about on Sunday, running errands in the rain, we came  to an intersection of two highways, somewhere near Flower Mound, TX.   The convergence of standing water, highway and fenceline, along with the verticals of the telephone poles, caught my eye.  Nell was driving, and I had my camera, so I took a couple of quick photos.  And on an overcast day, the colors were pretty intense.

This isn’t finished, but since I posted the easel setup, I thought I’d go ahead and show a closeup of the painting as well.

    I absolutely love the sky! It must be your brush stroke technique, and more than one color. Great work! Thanks so much for sharing your expertise and knowledge of painting. I appreciate it.
