4 April 2008 - Clarice House Grounds
Before I left for my trip I primed a couple of 10x12" canvas boards because I had noticed, when painting in the garden with Joannie, that they have a slight texture and worked better with a little base paint.
The one I decided to use while plein air painting in the grounds at Clarice was primed in bright yellow acrylic.
Here you can see the yellow base layer and my beginnings of a sky line.
I'm afraid I became lost to the universe over the next 40 minutes or so and totally forgot to take work in progress photos. Here is my painting near the final stages, just a few touches to add before reaching the finished image shown at the top of this posting.
This is just my second attempt at plein air painting with acrylic and I'm hooked, it feels so great to be in the middle of nature with my easel and paints.
