This is quick post before I head out to a welding interview. After getting some steel toe boots and staring at job listings all day, I saw a chance to get out this area around Stillhouse Lake that I’ve seen before. There is so much detail out there, I felt it was a good time to study how to simplify a scene into big planes. I lost the light before I finished all the way and tried to add the final smudges of paint at home. After doing this, however, I can see this really does have a good composition and I can’t wait to get back there for a larger sized plein air painting.
Off to the interview (two-day interview!). Keep your fingers crossed for me.
