Farmers’ market and Harrington Road

Some landscape sketches in oil from last night (12″ x 12″ on mdf boards) and a photo of Stella, Leslie and I after painting on Leslie’s land—the blue tree sketch is my first attempt at painting after dark–I had no idea what colors I was using!  We’d gone to the farmer’s market first, and then to paint the sunset at Leslie’s.

I was unsatisfied with all of these, for one reason or another, but I learned something from each one.  I am tempted to hold onto them and rework some things.  I’ve never done that before, so it would be a new challenge and new information.

Working and preparation right now is all about the landscape….moving into these end of summer ochres and the first hints of fall.  How to let these come through the canvas.  This is exciting work for me and a time of experimentation.
