Well, it wasn't really the first day of summer but it felt like it, sitting on a rock at Wellington's Day with the kiddies playing around me and families laughing in the warm sunshine - just beautiful. Yesterday I took the plein air painting I'd done and made a larger painting, focusing on enhancing the warmth of the scene and the glowing light.
The plein air study
The scene. See how the camera loses all the colour in the darks! Yuck.
Progress shots of the studio painting:
Acrylic base coat.
Note: The overall colour change here from the previous photo is due to photographing the painting under different light, not due to glazing or any technique like that. This final shot is closer to the real colours.
