Red Ford, Green Field 221
Going a bit off the reservation with this one. Weird siZe for me... 11"x14", and on a linen panel. I must say that I love working on panels. I love the spring of the canvas, but there is something I find very appealing about the hardness of the wood on the linen panel. I normally work very small or very large, hitting something in the middle was fun and I hope to do a few more of these before the show. I really like the freedom of this piece, from an artist stand. It is not plein air, but i approached that was and did not spend any time on the drawing... unlike the larger pieces. I really like the look of the drawing aspects of this piece, I will have to apply that to a larger piece if i ever have the guts!
