A Rare Oil

I don’t paint with oil paints very often. I’d have to check back through my blog to find the last time (March 11). 8×10”

No Model

The model didn’t show up this morning so some of the other artists were generous enough to take turns posing. 15 minute poses.

And after lunch I did a quick plein air from the roof of our house. It was very windy so I spent a lot of time holding on to my easel.

Bigger

I worked bigger today and tried drawing before I started painting to try to avoid dealing with that aspect while I was painting.

Post Nor’easter

A nor’easter came through here yesterday and the waves this morning were amazing! It was windy and I had to paint fast and with my easel low on the ground. Another 8×16”. I like this format a lot, but wish the paper was higher quality.

Cursed

This is at least the third painting on this panel. I’m convinced now that it is cursed. The moment I started this painting I got a call from the school nurse saying my child was sick. I continued painting for a little while before packing up and heading to the school. Luckily, despite ruining my painting opportunity, it was a false alarm. With this weekend’s impending nor’easter this may have been my only chance to paint some fall color this year.
