This weekend I went to my first Cincinnati Paint Out.
The setting was a historic German Town sponsored by the Woman’s Art Club. This group was founded in 1892, originally because the Cincinnati Art Club excluded Woman. Today neither club excludes genders.
I felt like doing another sky, my favorite subject. They are magical to me.
‘Rolling Up the Carpet #12″ 9×12″ Canvas Board
It’s a good day to remember summer days. Tomorrow we will have a high of -7. I think will paint a snow scene next though. I won’t be painting it outside!
Thunderhead Over Rolling Plains, 12″x24″ stretched canvas.
I’ve made progress on the big canvas. 30″x48″ The middle and foreground trees are next.
On the creek there are adjustments to make it more like actual place, but overall I think it’s working.
When I sketch my paintings, I use watercolor pencil and push my lines around with water and a brush. I usually paint the background yellow, tan, rust, or even red. I use gesso with a little fluid acrylic, in this case Indian Yellow. I never leave it white!
