I went out to the Scout Camp to help with some maintenance work but I wasn't needed and fortunately I had my paints with me. It was another perfect day for painting so I managed two painting this afternoon and I am happy with both of them.
The first one is of Mount Nemo as seen from the edge of the camp property. I have been struggling for ages trying to go bolder quicker and I came to the realization that I am using far too much water. I could have bold colours but the thin washes meant they faded to almost nothing when they dried. Now instead of adding layers of colour and often overworking a painting I am sometimes having to remove some paint. It is way more fun this way.
This second painting of the day was from the exact same spot but a slightly different angle.This barn was across a couple of bright green fields and nestled up against the maples on the side of the escarpment. I could have done at least five different paintings from this location and every one a different subject matter. What a great location.
