Here’s a couple plein air paintings from this afternoon. I’m trying something different here…painting oils on panel, 8×10, working entirely with pallette knives…the results are a little out of control, a little too abstract – it’s probably not for everyone, but I enjoy the really juicy surface! I’m going to have to keep at this – see if I can refine the edges, do better at ‘rendering’ the scene..
Sea Lion overlook, just next to Point Reyes lighthouse.
Up on Mount Tam, looking at SF. This one is became a bit too abstract – you’re looking down at Tiburon and SF from 2500 ft.
