This week looks to be a busy one in the painting world. Last week I worked to finish up many of my pieces, that is a slow process. But they are coming along! This week I will again go out and do some Plein Air paintings. Likely I'll be at a partk in the middle of Orange County painting on Tuesday and still to be announced for the Friday painting.
A few things to challenge myself and other Plein Air painters from a painter recently highlighted in the Plein Air magazine (he is now studying in Russia):
- Paint 2 small Plein Air paintings a day. Nothing else will improve your use of color
Then from another painter:
- Paint 100 paintings each in 1 hour.
So, I will take this advice and run...well Paint! With two little boys it may be a bit slower, but I will try! =)
The picture is a beautiful sunset we saw yesterday - I sure would like to paint this!
