2 plein airs - same time - knife & brush
I did this little experiment today. Went to Dale Hollow Lake State Resort Park and set up my gear next to the road. Both paintings are of the same scene, both are 5" x 7" on red toned canvas panels. Both took about 45 minutes. Not looking for a finished piece, but instead a good reference for another painting. I painted the knife one first hoping to loosen my brush later on. Don't really know if it worked or not, but it was fun to see the differences in each.
Both pics have a bit of glare on them. I'll try to get better pics later.
