Working on Color Temperature en Plein Air

Today I painted at a small memorial at the Olive Recreation Center in Burbank, California. There is a pillar and a bench surrounded by trees and roses. This ended up more loose and impressionistic because I was working fast, mostly because it was a hot day and my acrylics were drying! I particularly wanted to work on color temperature today and I think it turned out OK.

Yard Shed Rework

The original painting was done en plein air and in a hurry. Off and on this week I worked on painting over the right side. Then I realized I would have to re-paint the sky to make it even. I removed some of the confusing background. I finished up the painting today by adding the trees and making the stepping stones natural-looking. I think this painting leads the eyes from the bottom right to the top left.
