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!
