Study for "A Cool Morning", 9 x 12, oil on linen panel
This is a plein air piece started in Newport a couple of weeks ago. I did not spend enough time working out the composition before I started so I have struggled with it for the past week or so. My main area of concern was the bottom right corner. I had to make up the rocks and tree there so that the composition was more than just three horizontal bands. I think I will let it sit for a while. Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday weekend!
Revised painting as of 9/3: I had to move that big boulder in the right hand corner. It was heavy ; )
