Day 14 of 30 - Rural Impressions
Today's painting is a studio work in which I used both a photograph and a plein air study for my reference. This painting illustrates why it is so important for landscape artists to work from life (at least some of the time). As you can see below - the reference photo's colours are quite dull and boring. I used my painted study for value and colour reference - which I think really helped make this painting a success.

The sky is wonderful! I know it is a small portion, but it sets the rest off nicely, like a fine women's hat from the 40's. LOL. Love your color study too. The texture on the building is really nice :)
