plein air sketches: spicer's creek


First plein air of the summer.
I want to be more deliberate in my plein air painting this summer.
• try different compositions
▪︎ do value studies
• make color swatches
• commit to color schemes, e.g., analogous, complementary, etc.
• paint studies

Also want to work on my paint handling: fresher washes, better ratio or paint:water ...

Sounds ambitious! Hoping articulating these goals will keep me on track.

Lovely compositions, my eye took a nice slow and easy stroll. So difficult to do but you have made it look effortless.
