...Some Oils from Driggs Digs Plein Air...

I can hardly believe that the week is already over.  It was a time of a lot of field work, great camaraderie, too much sunshine and wonderful learning opportunities.

I had decided to challenge myself for the week and work only in oils.  This ended up being a great goal for me.  I enjoyed myself immensely and got into the rhythm quickly.  All in all, I am pleased!

It was interesting for me to see how much crossover there was in my pastel and oil work.  As you can see from previous blog entries, I stuck to my interest in a primary layer representing the temperature of the colors that I see prior to putting down the local color.  I feel that in both mediums this helps to communicate to the viewer what it truly felt like to be there, which is what I strive for. I am hoping you feel the same.

Until the next post, enjoy this delightful summer weather!
