9" X 12" Oil on Masonite Panel
I will be in a show with my local artists guild this Saturday and will probably paint outside with a friend of mine, Syd McCutcheon. I'll probably do a similar scene to this one since there isn't much to paint in the park where we will be painting at. I did this one to warm up for the show. Took me about 2 hours today so I think I'll be ok for Saturday. I'd hate to get out there and draw a blank for a subject or totally goof it. I'd like to be able to do one of these in less than an hour but I'm still not able to paint that quick using my imagination. Sometimes you have to see in your mind what you want and then make that happen with the paint. Sometimes you paint it but don't like it so you think of something else that works so this stuff slows me down a bit.
