There are lots of rocks where I live. Often you can come across large boulders in the middle of the forest. A lot of them are glacial erratics, deposited by the moving ice long ago. Others are large chunks of the mountainside that have rolled to their current resting spot. Whatever the case they add a nice variety to the landscape, and are always fun to paint.
This painting is a quick plein air sketch from this evening.
Grabbed my painting gear and snuck out this afternoon for a bit of plein air. A friend of mine gave me a few pieces of Antwerp Belgium Linen to try out…….very nice. Life is slowing down a bit, so hopefully will have more time to post on a regular basis.
It was a balmy 6 degrees Fahrenheit this afternoon when I went out to paint.
At that temperature the oil paint and mediums turn into a wonderfully thick gooey sticky sludge. Yes, it was painfully cold, but I loved every minute of it.
