12"x9" Oil on linen mounted on hardboard
This is an oil sketch I did for my class to demonstrate a way to begin using a more alla prima method. I didn't intend on finishing it but now that I see it posted I think I will. I'd like to play up the contrast between the onion skin and the smooth metal surface.
Today is the opening for the Palos Plein Air exhibition at the McCord Gallery in Palos Heights, IL. So if you're in the area, hope you can stop by - www.mccordgallery.org. They will be showing three of my plein air paintings painted in different Palos forest preserves.
