Oil Painting Outdoors - Part 3:

This post contains additional supporting material in respect of my article entitled
"Oil Painting Outdoors - Part 3", published in the September 2014 issue of The Artist magazine, available from 19th August from newsagents, or go to www.painters-online.co.uk

The concluding article in this three part feature explained how to produce an outdoor location study using a full colour palette and described with a step by step worked example.

Here are two additional studies produced in the same manner as described in the article and each took about one hour and a half to complete.

The first was painted on a bright, crisp morning in early February with the low angle of the sun throwing long shadows across the road.

I produced the painting below on a hot afternoon in July working against the light. The dappled light through the Birch trees created areas of intense greens and strong patches of light on the ground.
