Today is the sixth post in Leslie Saeta's 30 Paintings in 30 Days challenge
by Judith Flynn Lochbrunner
acrylic on paper
6 by 6 inches
This small work was begun plein air (outside) on a very hot morning last month. Fortunately there was enough of a breeze as I stood on the overlook at the top of the mountain to allow me get a good start on this work. I can still feel the heat of that day when I look at this painting.
Back in the studio the work only needed a few more indications of buildings, a more defined road, as well as some brighter colors in a few places including in the focal point area.
I would like to return to paint this view one more time--preferable during color weather!
Many thanks for keeping up with the challenge on my blog.
