A diary of artwork in progress en plein air and in studio.
After the Harvest
Sketchbook study and painting on the farm
Back in the studio I set about developing the feeling of the scene in oils on a small gessoed panel, with composition tweaked more to my liking. Having worked the sketch from life and direct observation, some how the brain retains additional visual information. Feels like being back in the moment. It's a good alternative when time or full plein air painting kit isn't available.
