To follow up the last post, “Learning to Paint Plein Air”, on what I take with me to paint outdoors, here are a few landscape paintings from this summer.
The most recent have a lighter tone, feeling more “airy” on purpose: I replaced darker colors like ultramarine blue, Courbet green, burnt umber and yellow ochre with cobalt or cerulean blue, cobalt teal, nickel yellow.
I picked up that tip from watching this Nita Leland’s video Creating Confident Color. I have been studying her book by the same name, hoping to learn things I can teach.
