Touched By A Late August....10" x 12" o/p
A bright, sunny and warm summer day ! A perfect and relaxing summer day to paint together and visit with an old outdoor painter friend. I do not think that it would have mattered what the scene was. Just the act of applying paint to panel or canvas and enjoying each others company was full feeling for both of us, I am sure.
The panel was a Masonite panel that had been prepared with gesso and two coats of a red-orange acrylic paint. Bits and pieces of the reddish background colour may be seen through the painted layers (colours) of the panel. I feel that these small bits of reddish colours, or its' warm glow under the final colours, appearing in different areas of the painting , in this particular example, help to pull the final painting together.
Am I the only one to feel that this is true ?
