Plein air workshop day 3 - fields

detail from painting above

These are pics from day three of the plein air workshop I took with Laurie Wonfor Nolan. Fields often intimidate me but I learned a lot from our last session - and watching Laurie do a kick-ass painting of a field was very interesting, informative and inspiring. And I like what I came away with! Now I have to get out there and paint more fields before I get locked back into my old patterns ; )

Beautiful Kim! I love the compliment colours of blue and orange with your bold shapes. Wish I was there painting with Laurie! I miss her classes!

I have to say - both you and John Singer-Sargent have given me an idea today! I recently attempted to paint my recent spanish landscape in watercolour. It all went well until I came the the field of wheat, where I failed miserably. I was going to throw it away, but then I read something that John Singer-Sargent said, which was to paint in oils like you would with watercolour and paint with watercolour like you would with oils. Hmmm - then I saw your painting and thought 'YES!!!' I will paint the field straight from the tube like oils! I wonder if it might save the painting???
Thanks so much for the idea!
