Plein air



Pin It
Painting in the rain today which was a new experience for me.
And it's true that oil and water do not mix :)
Nevertheless all those raindrops on the palette made it very hard to mix the paint using the brush and the paint would kind of slide across the surface of the painting.

Rainy Shed, 8x10 oil on masonite (n/a)

Good job Erik, it has the feeling of the rain on it, seems you are using a limited palette. it gives an ambiance.

Erik said...

Thank you Jesus,
I like the limited palette too, it forces me to think about color which is good for me.

Youve done a great jon Erik, is that your house? Nice place.

sam said...

I meant in the background not the shed! ;o)

Erik said...

Thanks Sam.
LOL, no the house belongs to friends of the artist I painted with, it's a beautiful place. We wanted to do some painting in the nature reserve that was close by but because of the bad weather we decided to do some painting outside near the house.
