Hot Morning by the Creek 4x6 oil


I went back to Irvine Regional for another look at the creek.  It was much hotter than last week.  I managed to paint three small canvases.  I think this was the best and the first done.  I will post them in progression.  My husband came along again and walked and read and rested.  I love the sounds in the park.  It was a really great morning.

Hi Dori! This is a lovely P.A. painting. That patch of violet is a wonderful contrast to all the greens. I hope you are well.

Yes, the patch of purple, like Silvina said, works wonderfully. I like it next to the orange.

I love the brush work in this one. I just started plein air with a group from SBAA, it's great fun. You make it look all so easy, great job.

Oh keep going with that thick paint!! It's fantastic. Also I'm really liking the atmospheric perspective in this one.
