Painting 30 in 30- #7 Ellis Bird Farm

#7 Ellis Bird Farm   6x6 Oil on Paper/Board   $125.00 unframed
I love the mauve(ish) clouds against the oranges on the ground plain in this vista. I imagine I'll paint it many times over!
One of the real rewards of this project is that you begin to develop good practices just by virtue of being in your studio so much. When I'm painting in my studio, I use a flat screen t.v. as my monitor . I have found that it's best to face the screen to do the drawing but that I get far better colour by swinging my easel sideways for the rest of the painting. What a great discovery!
