Week four. April 2015.


LOOK:


QUESTION:
The early spring foliage colors on this overcast day are so subtle. Can I match them without making a boring and uninteresting painting?


PAINT:

Cusp Colors, 10" x 5", oil on gessoed paper, $175 framed, $150 unframed.

FIELD NOTES:
At the end of the afternoon, as I was walking the painting to the car, the wind kicked up suddenly. A gust snatched the painting out of my hands, threw it butter-side down on the gravel, and then cartwheeled it across the grass. So whoever buys this painting gets two for the price of one - a painting and a re-painting. And a little dirt and grass thrown in for free.
