Plein Air Challenge: Day 17
Just playing with atmosphere and texture today. (Atmosphere is code for rain!). Yes it's raining again. I set up under a big oak tree which at first provided a pretty nice shelter. Then the rain got really heavy and the shelter didn't do the job. It's a good thing water and oil don't mix. Although I've had a few comments on this blog about a resist happening when painting on acrylic primed canvas, and I must say I experienced that a little bit. Painting thicker seemed to solve the problem. I would be very curious if anyone else has had this experience and what they did to help it. I haven't tried painting on oil primed linen in the rain, so that's next.
