Sherry Painting, 6 x 6 inch oil on panel
© 2012 Kathleen Coy
This is one of the gals in my plein air group, and the way she was sitting with the strong sunlight hitting her, was far more interesting to me than the barns most of the group were painting. (And the barns were really, really neat!)
This was painted about half on location, but she was getting sunburned, so I finished the background in the studio from photos. I like the looseness of this piece. The shoes, hat, and tee shirt are my favorite parts. I like the green reflecting on her leg from the grass.
The chair legs look a little short to me. Still learning about skin tones in oils. Totally out of my comfort zone. And you know what? I'm having a lot of fun.
