Working on 3 at a time

I haven't been out much lately but Saturday am I had some time. I made an attempt at painting 3 canvases at one sitting (standing actually). I swapped them out from my easel at regular intervals. Painted one scene in front of me, one behind and the other to the right of me, I left the easel where it stood. Fun energetic, outing! I found It refreshing to get involved in one painting and then have to break and start on another. It helps to see each with fresh eyes as you change from one to another.

Let me know what you think.

trees 14 x 18:




fence 18 x 14:




shed 10 x 8:




I did this one a few weeks ago:
16 x12:




Thanks for looking,

John

These are really nice. I especially like the first, but each has some very strong aspect for me.

Hi John,
Nice exercise! I think you have some great warm/cool things happening in these. Good to hear you are out there and pushing the piles of paint!
Are you still working with the same palette?

I really like your choice of colors. Your work reminds me of Van Gogh.

(Strong - I really like your technique John!) Thanks Ernst!

lorigina _ Thank you

I seem to vacillate between wanting to do energetic, free_spirited work and then tighting it up a bit. Maybe it's all leading somewhere?
