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.
Here are a few quick winter gouache sketches. I’ve been inspired by a Russian artist lately by the name Stepan Kolesnikoff. The first one is loosely based off one of his works. The others are just out of my head.
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.
