Starwberry Banke (Plein Air study)
I went out this morning to Strawberry Banke in Portsmouth, New Hampshire to do some Plein air painting. Strawberry banke is a historic colonial New England Neighborhood preserved with a number of 17th through 19th century homes and structures on the grounds. It was a sunny spring morning and I was again reminded of how quickly that great ball of fire moves in the short period of time I had to paint. I posted a picture of my Raw Umber drawing and the finish. I'm going to have to work more quickly with fewer and bolder strokes next time.
