Yellow house in the sun-plein air
Hi there, I painted this piece last week in town. A beautiful day, I stood in the shade with hummingbirds buzzing around me. It can be so challenging to paint plein air but this day was such a pleasure. I toned the canvas with burnt sienna and some of it shows through on the foreground. I laid the paint on pretty heavy in the sunlit areas. My goal is to paint impressionistically and I want the painting to be interesting up close, heavy paint in some areas. I think this one met my expectations. This is oil on a 8 x 10 stretched canvas. Enjoy your weekend!
