Alla prima wind-down

Instead of warming up with this one today, I painted it at the end of my work day, as a wind-down. It was almost as refreshing as an actual walk in the park. Almost.

These little landscapes I’ve been doing are small versions of larger paintings I’m working on or planning to have available for the Revel. The larger version of this one is still in the sketch stage, but I loved playing with the color scheme here in the smaller painting. I’ll be showing the larger paintings, too, as I finish them.

Here are some work-in-progress photos:
