"New Harvest" outing
This is my third outing this year, and this time I visited a place hidden between Christiansburg and Radford. It is the building site of a new church, aptly called New Harvest. This beautiful spring day, it was warm enough for shorts! I post here photos to help understand my process. I drive my trusty companion Isuzu, Pepe', as it will go basically ANYWHERE. I literally can drive up to my painting spots and work out of the back of the vehicle.
I always try and set up, paint, and leave within a 2 hour period of time. Some folks wonder why so quick? These are exercises in hitting the colors and forms efficiently, understanding that the light will change within 2 hours. Sometimes I get it right, sometimes my colors are off. Either way, these sessions keep me fresh for my studio work.
Enjoy, and as always, feel free to email me if you have questions or comments! Until next time, happy painting!!
