I went out to Farmer Brown's place again for another go at plein air with the class. This is from the same hill as last time but in another direction.

C&C welcome. 10X10 inches with Galleria and Infinity

I like the feeling of distance and the variety of soft greens in this painting. Nice job!

Carol,
I like this one better than you last plein air. This painting has a foreground, a middle, and background which, from a composition standpoint, moves the eye over the painting. Nice work!

Very lovely Carol - Do you feel more in the zone when painting outdoors?

Thanks Debra. This one has a greater sense of depth than the other one.

Beautiful work as always!

Appreciated Dave :o

Larry C.

Larry you are right!! This has a better fore, middle and background.

Very nice work, Carol. I guess you enjoyed so much on this one. :)

I did enjoy it. Hanging outside....getting eaten by bugs (forgot the repellent) :eek: It is better if you go with someone for moral support. I am not very brave on my own either.

Me too, IO keep saying I want to go outside but .... :p

Very lovely Carol - Do you feel more in the zone when painting outdoors? I guess I am feeling more comfortable about painting outside. MY first attempt I came so very close to throwing a tantrum :mad: but talked myself out of it cause I did not think it was a very adult thing to do...LOL!!!!!


Thanks for the comments all..

I just read through replies before posting and I had to laugh at the thought of you throwing what we call a 'wobbler' in front of the rest of the class. :evil:
It would have been a great subject matter for them to paint lol :D

Another great result Carol.. You seem to be getting better and better at the moment. The classes are obviously suiting you or the fresh air is one of the two :wink2:

You'll be having your own exhibition soon if you keep this up - what more can I say! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Hi Carol.
Nice scene.
I would like to see more yellows in the closest grass to separate it from the distant greens. Good job on the distant hills. I bet plein aire is difficult with so much color and so many details to see. I'll have to try it sometime.

LOL!!!! I am familiar with the term wobbler. I no longer use it as I have to explain the meaning to every American who hears it. I have not been THAT frustrated for a long time. Needless to say I never posted my first plein air attempt. That has been relegated to the pile of less-than-successful art :mad: I admitted my frustration to my art teacher later that day and she seemed surprized that I covered it up so well. It is kind of funny now :cat:

An exhibition would be good. I just have to get out there and market myself.

Thanks for the compliments.

Very nice piece Carol, it has a soft pastoral 19th century feel to it.

Hello Gay, oopps cross-posted.....

Thank you for the comments.

I think the closest grass really anchors the foreground. It was in shadow so the greens were darker. I like it the way it is but I really appreciate the time you took to comment.

Thanks again.

I agree with the comments above including the one about adding a little more yellow to the grass in the forground to make it stand out. The closer we are to something the more detail we see.

I don't have time at the moment...am in transport having performed coffeehouse style blues last night...but, think you should also post this also in the plein air forum Carol, so that you get some insights from artists there that engage in the challenges of plein air routinely. Not many are representing acrylic in that forum either, meaning its nice to have the variety.

Good to see you at it!!! :clap:

keep it up...

Charissa, I agree with what you are saying about the detail, but it is in shadow.........
