Forsythia 2

5"X7" Oil on panel

I managed to paint outside today at last. Although I have painted plein air with watercolours, it is something that I have rarely (never?) done with oils, so I am back on the learning curve. Painting in natural light always has its challenges, today perhaps more than most because the actual subject was the quickly changing shadows. Of necessity this one was a pretty quick, impressionistic study, painted in under an hour. Even so, by the end I was painting from memory and imagination.

This painting is SOLD
