A Small Painting

Today I thought I'd break away from animation and share some more of my "plein air" painting with you. This painting I did a few months ago while there was still some green in the hills around here. The day was great because it was somewhat overcast and so I was able to get some good atmosphere in it. I also used the opportunity to exercise painting small with a large brush. I've always been fascinated by paintings that when viewed at a distance have greater detail than when viewed up close. The only way to achieve this is to paint with a large brush and larger strokes. This painting is only 7"x12" and most of it if you look close is not very detailed but from a distance it all falls into place.

Getting out of the studio is always a large part of keeping your artistic stride.
