Shades of Summer Art Show

Once again the morning temperature was 46F (8C) but it did manage to make it up to 62F (17C) by the time we closed the show today.

With the continuing cold and the overcast skies not many people came out to the show today, which gave me plenty of time to work on this painting that I had worked on here a couple of days ago (see posts on 21 February, 25 March and 13 August 2014).

Using a darker mix of French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna I put in the closest line of trees.

While the paint was still wet I dropped into some areas of the trees pure burnt sienna, and raw sienna to add a little life to the painting.

With a paler mix of the tree colour I added some very distant trees into the background.

Please come out and enjoy our art show at some point over the weekend if you are in the Buckhorn area.

The hours for our show are:
15 Aug 14 - 10:00am - 5:00pm
16 Aug 14 - 10:00am - 5:00pm
17 Aug 14 - 12:30pm - 4:00pm

Thank you for coming to look at my artwork.
