This is the largest plein air painting I've done. It measures 18" x 24" and is oil on canvas, mounted to birch, painted with a palette knife. I gessoed a few times, sanding between each coat. Then applied a wash of red and yellow ochre with turps, letting it dry before applying paint.
Not only was the size a challenge for me, but the wind kicked up a lot towards the end of the session, forcing me to hold onto the panel with both hands. I meant to take a lot of in-progress pics, but you know how that goes, I forgot after the first one.
