The temperature here today was 91 degrees, so I was feeling a little lazy and sat while I worked on a landscape sketch in oils. in may I took a class in plein air painting at the Columbus Cultural Arts Center.What a great resource for local artists!
The field behind our house is beginning to show some of its late summer colors- Purple for iron weed ans golden yellow of the goldenrod. The rolling cumulus clouds were blowing by so quickly it was difficult to capture them in paint.
This 8"x10" oil sketch needs some more tweeking but was a good attempt for about a two hour time investment.
