Last spring I walked outside with my plein-air set-up
and tried to paint skunk cabbage
that was abundantly growing in our "back 40"
not 40 acres ... more like 40 meters square!
I guess I never did post it because of trouble with the painting.
Well, I worked on it a bit with some suggestions from my painterly friends
and this is what happened. So it is not entirely plein-air, of course.
First, this is what I have of the progress:
The photo above doesn't look tons different,
but there was paint added to the tree because it looked see-through,
and more paint up the slope, etc.
|Skunk Cabbage 8x10 oil on panel|
I think it gives the impression of those yellow/green fat swords
bursting from the ground...for me anyhow.
I think it is finished.
Thank you for viewing my art blog!
