It’s November, and I’m back at Seawind Meadows, in Dennis. Lucky to have a chance to paint Nicky enjoying a pumpkin breakfast this close!
I decided to focus on the cattle and not a full landscape today.
Focusing on only what was in front of me gave me a chance to have fun painting the cattle. The stone wall and tree trunks were added at the beginning for color notes and composition. I believe this study breaks the rules “two trees, two cattle odd numbers.. etc.. funny how that happens!! Thank you! Catherine
Here is my new Strada Easel and Kelty Redwing Pack. I love them, (a birthday present from my wonderful husband, Philip!). Click here to go to Strada Easel. The Kelty Redwing 44 Pack is recommended by Strada and they know what they are talking about. The pack is great and fits everything I need. Many thanks to Orleans Camera for helping me find the right tripod. Click here to go to Orleans Camera.
A spray with retouch varnish and I’m going to give this July scene another try. Even though this morning is barely 50º (degrees).
I wanted to use My Art Cocoon wet paint carrier with my Strada Easel. Since this wet paint carrier is wider than the easel’s metal support bracket, I wrapped a small bungee around the My Art Cocoon and the Strada cavas holder. Back to front.
The bungee hooks held nicely to the metal bracket at the top of the easel. I was able to paint and then carry my painting in my pack without any mishaps!
