Here's a very quick plein air sketch I did today. I painted it over something else that had a similar foreground...that's why it is already signed. How efficient! It's just a practice painting, so I doubt that it will find it's way to a frame...we'll see. Sometimes I change my mind.
I also re-stated a few darks and lights to the lady in the hat. Can you tell the difference? (see Tuesday post below).
Finally, I spent a couple of hours this afternoon adding paint into 125 ml jars. Yeah, yeah, I know TUBES of paint are convenient...but I have it on good authority that this is a cost-saving system and I'm willing to give it a shot. I painted the tops of the jars and put them into one storage case. (Can you name the colors? ) Big prize if you can!
