Plein Air after midterm

These Are paintings that I did from marr park near the UCM campus.

This is a pastel I did the colors came out really bright I think it looks a little like a fairy tale.

Latest Plein Aire

This is a quick little master study I did of one of Maxfield Parrish's landscapes/Illustrations. His color usage reminds me of the psychedelic fantasy illustration done during the 1960s. I think it has something to do with with his complementary shadow colors.

This is small painting I did on the UCM farm of some distant rolling hills I wanted to try and capture the roundness of the hills hopefully I did this.

This is a larger version of the above painting.

More Draw-a-Thon

Here are some more images from Draw-a-thon. These are all pastel, I actually think I learned quite a bit in this years draw-a-thon, maybe draw-a-thon isn't all that bad.

The UCM farm

These are some studies I did out at the UCM farm, this was probably my most favorite spot we have painted this far in our class. I tried to keep all these really small in size and quick.
