Oil painting – plein air – a quiet path.

Yesterday I did a plein air(sur le motif) painting…on my birthday. It was great. I’m quite happy with it in the sense that I really didn’t fiddle..I gave a first wash, then a second layer thin paint and then the final layer and lastly added fine details and I’m happy it turned out OK.

And THANK you to everybody who sent me good wishes for my birthday…I loved each one!!

  1. So interesting to see the bright underpainting and then how its developed into the warm and sunny finished one. This will be a lovely reminder of a happy birthday!

  2. Happy Birthday, dear, dear Ronell. I agree with the others about the effects of the bright underpainting. I know nothing about oils so this is so interesting to me.
