|"Red barn at dusk study" by Hilary J England, oil on canvas, 8" x 10"|
I've started three new preliminary studies...I like working in threes (must be a compulsion). One painting is the final phase of the teenage girls I was working with, and the other two I've branched out a bit, and I'm really excited to begin working on those studies and sketches. I will also be working bigger with these paintings, with the smallest being 24" x 36", and a possible triptych in this series.
So, I am excited to begin this new phase in my series. In the meantime, enjoy this little plein air painting from last summer. It's a local barn, and I was working against the fading evening, but wow, was the sunset beautiful that night, with some storm clouds mixed into the evening sky, giving it a really purple hue. I am looking forward to the warm weather and the beach, and doing lots more plein air studies. Enjoy~~
