Friday!

Here I've done a quick oil study of a field. I "subtracted" some of the paint to indicate plants in the foreground. I may consider using this for a larger painting.

Study, Celeste Bergin, In the Field, oil on 5x7 gessoed hardboard.

Beautiful greens and reds! Would make a great larger painting.

I like this. I know it would be a good larger painting too.

I really like this one Celeste. Color and value contrasts catch my eye along with the brushwork.

Well it certainly works at many levels. It appeals from first sight.

Look forward to developments.

Have a good weekend

Full of joy! Really nice handling of aerial perspective, too. Love your landscapes!

Un champ où j'aimerais bien me promener... Des couleurs éclatantes... Je pense que vous avez raison de vouloir en faire une plus grande toile.
De gros bisous

A field of wildflowers, nothing more breathtaking. Beautiful job, Celeste! Intellectually, I know what subtracting paint is, but I am not able to envision it.
