Blackhawk Island Plein Air Painting
I did this black and white study to warm up today. There is a lot of green out there so simplifying was helpful--just worrying about the values.
After lunch I progressed to color. It was a beautiful day on the island (which is actually a peninsula except during floods). We were on Lorine Neidecker"s home turf (American poet, b.1903-d.1970). She lived simply, in a log cabin near the water's edge. Very rustic but easy to see why she liked it.
