Landscapes and Flowers: Plein Air(esque)

The Waterford Seven took the opportunity today to begin the two week journey of landscapes or flower paintings. Last week we began by prepping our canvases in orange as to give us a bright background to work on top of this week. After we did that we worked through the ideas of color mixing with acrylics and created some abstractions. We tested our color mixing ideas this week by beginning to add in the sky or greens of the plant life and grasses in the compositions. The process is a long one and the “W7” are really showing their sense of grit.
