Recent Plein Air Painting

Dunn State Park

Two weeks ago I went to Dunn State Park in Gardner to do some painting.

Honestly, I am much more comfortable painting in my studio, but somehow, on a lovely summer day, it just seems criminal not to head out with the paints.

My first attempt (not shown) was really tight and miserable.

I am more happy with this one.

As with nearly all my oil paintings, I used a combination of water mixable oils and R&F Pigment Sticks. Using the sticks helps me keep things loose and bold.
