Yesterday I did a quick plein air painting at Brace Canyon Park. It was after 3:00 PM and the sun was making its way down the sky through some haze. It washed everything in a pale yellow light.
It was a warm winter day, painting with my daughter today at the Griffith Park Merry-Go-Round in Burbank, California.
I painted this en Plein Air using the backyard as reference. It was late morning and the winter sun cast long shadows of the trees. The oranges are not ripe yet, the fruit large but yellow. This style of painting suits me, I must go forward from here and not backwards.
Sunday we had a “Family Paint Night” and I showed my family my technique for making abstract paintings using masking tape. Everyone had fun and the results are spectacular! <3
