Picture a Day #259 – Last Day of Summer

In honor and celebration of the final day of summer, I took my easel outside this morning, and did a little painting en plein air.

I have been thinking about my immediate surroundings and forming a composition in my mind for several weeks. All I needed was a little motivation to begin this project.

After sketching in the scene with pencil, I used Cadmium Yellow Pale for my first layer of color. Next came Prussian Blue.

I am looking forward to watching this unfold. Happy Fall!

I am an observer of the world around me, a student of nature with the eyes of an artist, and a teacher. My interests have taken me into the water, across the meadow, through the forest, along the cliffs, and up the mountain. My latest journey has plunged me into the virtual world of words and images.
