Wet Paint, Plein Air ...

  
   I did this quick little 10x8, oil/canvas this afternoon in the back yard as a rumbling thunderstorm was blowing through just to the north. I worked with a limited palette of Titanium White, Ivory Black, Cad Yellow Medium, Cad Red Light, Ultramarine & Ceruleun Blue. I used Liquin as my medium. The sunlit edges of the dense clouds shined against the blue of the sky. I also liked how the sunlit hotness remained constant on the blowing bamboo and kept the heat of the reflected light in the shadows.

Wow. Just wonderful. I get a great sense of imminent weather and temperature from this. That Liquin is great stuff, isn't it? I use Daniel Smiths version (a better buy in a gallon, but essentially the same stuff).

Thanks R! Your comments mean a lot... as well as your recommendations, I am liking the Liquin a lot and will check out the D.S. version.
