Camp Stables, 8 x 10
As promised, here is a painting I just did using a study I did on-site from our Plein Air Austin trip. As I mentioned, I wasn't pleased with several of my plein air pieces--for a variety of reasons. The way my paint was taking to the canvas was one of them--I've since determined that the panels I was using seem to absorb more paint than the one I used here. I really liked the way the paint stands on top of this panel--it's a Pannelli Telati canvas panel from Jerry's. I've been using RayMar, which I like for other reasons, but I think I'll be gessoing the remainder I have to get the results I want. Like anything, it's a learning process.
This stable is one of Camp Waldemar's, in Hunt, Texas. It's the first subject our group of four stopped to paint on our recent PAA annual trip.
