I signed up for a six-week plein air class that meets Tuesday afternoons at Burcham's Farm, about half hour north of me, on the Maurice River. It's a beautiful property, lots of green, though so it'll be a little challenging for me.
The instructor paints in gouache and the other students are oil painters.
I started with the 8x8 above to try to reduce the overwhelming to something manageable!
I took just a little piece and tried to just concentrate on values.
Prior to class tomorrow I hope to study a few watercolors by Edward Hopper, who had such a lovely, unfussy way of painting grasses!
