Today, we had planned on a road trip down to Hocking Hills, but the weather was cold and wet. So we met in Worthington at Ruth Ann’s house. She has a lovely home on a wooded ravine. Instead of painting her backyard, I had brought a photo from my trip of rocks and cacti.
I started on a dark navy blue colored mat board which I had coated with acrylic matte medium several weeks ago when I was preparing some lightweight boards for traveling. I like the smooth texture of this surface.
I sat on the porch swing while painting under the cover of the porch. I'd hoped the slight movement of the swing would loosen up my brushstrokes! hahaha
Bill Westerman did our critique and here is a link to his slide show: http://billwesterman.zenfolio.com/p560563366
After I got back home, I used up the paint leftover on the palette by making a little abstract.
