Fresh from the Easel
of the painting, I decided the bench, which was actually gray, would show
better as a blue bench. This is another of our artist challenge for the 5 Double Line Painters to complete a total of 120 paintings by early October.
I spent quite a bit of time chasing art supplies which the wind was scattering from place to place. Finally, after the canvas became a sail and left my easel, I decided to complete the painting indoors!
I was able to get a good start plein air which gives it a bit of freshness difficult to achieve indoors but working with out the wind as a challenge, I made some artistic design decisions which, unfortunately do not show so well in the photograph.
