8X10 Oil on Wood
Here is the completed piece from this month's Arkansas League of Artist's paint out. This ridge is part of the Pinnacle Mountain complex. It is just west of Pinnacle Mountain State Park. This marvelous view is right behind the studio of artist Bob Snider! He also has a view of Pinnacle of which I got a couple of pictures in a great light. Those may find their way onto the easel soon enough.
I've done more work on this in the studio than I did in the field so I'm not sure it still qualifies as plein air! One very interesting thing about this one is that I made a shift in my yellows. Usually, yellow ochre is the coolest yellow I use and sometimes I wonder if it really isn't actually warmer than Cad yellow! But I usually use it as my cool yellow because it's lower in chroma. However, I used lemon yellow here as my primary yellow. My thinking here is that as the weather cools, the sun will be less intense and I can simulate that feel with a cooler yellow for my lights.
