I’ve been doing Plein Air working on 2 paintings a day one in the am and one in the late afternoon – some take more than one day – but light needs to be consistent. small burn out happening.
Then at mid-day, I’ve been doing is drawing on mylar with graphite – pencils, sticks and making a slurry with graphite powder and painting medium – pick your favorite – very satisfying surface and the graphite can be wiped off too for wonderful effects.
Then there is lovely Lake Paran in North Bennington. I’ve started my mornings there the last 3 days. I’ll be back tomorrow for the upper right corner of the painting with the dock.
Then there’s the afternoon paintings when I wasn’t thinking clearly or thought I needed more of a challenge beyond just getting paint on the canvas. Below you will find the view of the top of the dam with reflections in the water and this afternoon’s start . . . the train station OMG that can’t even stand up straight!
