Sun and Shadows

Sun and Shadows

6x8in oil on canvas board $100.

This morning I joined the Las Cruces Plein Air Painters at a beautiful location called Dripping Springs. I decided to try the Daily Painters Rectangle Challenge. The goal is to use a rectangle stroke ONLY - any direction - and to change the color or value with EVERY stroke. Great fun and more difficult than it sounds. The result is a painting which does not look like one of my landscapes but you can tell there is a bush, a mountain, reflections, stones, ground, sun and shadows.

Go to Daily Paintworks and check out all the entries the Challenge. There are some really neat ones.
