View Full Version : Flowers at Meadow Croft, a plein air
08-22-2013, 12:08 AM
I haven't posted a painting in quite a while. This summer has been very busy, and I've had little time to paint. I went out this evening with some friends and did some plein air work. The light wasn't very good, so I chose to do the flowers. I figured I could at least get some strong color. Size is 5"x8", painted on Wallis Pro, using Mount Visions, Great Americans and Unisons.
It feels good to be painting again, I've been going crazy.....:evil:

This is lovely, so fresh and loose. I love how you created sort of hints of the flower/colors in the background.

This is lovely Chris, soft fresh colours and very loose. I'm going away on a short holiday tomorrow up to the north of our state in Australia. It's the wildflower season there, hope that I can capture some as well as you have!

Beautiful, ethereal...just wonderful work Chris! I immediately thought of Jean-Francois Millet's "Narcissi and Violets." Glad you finally have the time to paint!!
