Oil Study

Just a plein air oil study to establish colors and shapes....warming up for Pacific Northwest Plein Air 2011 in the Columbia River Gorge... (beginning this week!) Remember, even if you are not competing in the actual event, if you are a plein air painter you can come out and paint at the same locations where we will be. You can find the list of places with dates: HERE.

Oil Study: Celeste Bergin, Summer, oil on 10x10

This is great--like you've spotted the clearing and can see what's beyond.

Celeste, I love this composition. It has such a good balance between horizontal and vertical. Thanks, also, for the info on where the paintouts will be. Maybe I'll join in.
