Herschel Hudson Plein Air

This morning's plein air...
The skies threatened rain, and we did, in fact, get a few drops. Despite the dreary skies (which I edited in my painting) we had a good morning. I'm still working on atmospheric perspective--which I don't have down, yet.

Carol,

It looks like you got some of the drama down (atmosphere perspective). Squint those eyes to see the values (the color range), the lights against the darks, the contrast. I look forward to seeing more of your work.

Re: Herschel Hudson Plein Air

love the looseness..and the fields
..
One thing I noticed is the building sizes.. is one a barn & one a house?

the small building seems to be closest and then the others appear about the same size but one really should be much smaller the show it is so far away..

I'm thinking a barn would be quite a bit bigger than a house and if the house is the distant one the door would be softer due to distance, and some same soft windows added.

Re: Herschel Hudson Plein Air

Joy, thanks for your comments. Actually, the larger red-roofed one is a house built in the shape of a steep-roofed barn. The farthest one is not really a barn, but an out-building, as is the tiny one closest to the viewer. I see how all that causes some confusion for the viewer. I probably should have used artistic license to change the buildings.

Thanks again for your input.

Carol
