The Shining Path

was painting this morning outdoors in a friend's backyard. (Yeah, I'd like a yard like this too) This is about light. Oddly enough, there wasn't any; it was grey and starting to rain as I painted. For you botony types, the only semi-recognizable items here are a copper beech and a tulip tree. The rest is . . . .abstract.

Re: The Shining Path

This is a wonderful feast of colour and shapes. It is impressionistic at it's best. I love it.

Re: The Shining Path

Chammi, Linda, Jon and Ann....tfl. The saga continues with this plein air painting; I mean how to keep the acrylics wet just a little longer, without resorting to extender, as you're fumbling around for the right colour in your box. I've heard that some people use paper(?) on a wet sponge to create a palette. Is anyone familiar with this technique?

I really like the way you draw the eye to the center of the piece. Jan

Re: The Shining Path

I really like this painting Firebrush. It's a delight to the eyes - so full of colour and light. The composition works well - my eyes kept wandering about the picture and didn't want to leave!

Re: The Shining Path

Hi there. Just get any old plastic (not too deep) box, put some roller towel (kitchen paper towel) at the bottom. ( two layers will do) . Wet them thoroughly and then lay some grease-proof paper on top and voila , you have a stay wet palette. The paint does tend to get a little runny though and a great suggestion was that you lay plastic bottle tops or pill box tops onto the towel and fill them with your various paint colours. No need for extender when you do it this way. Hope this helps.
