I think the tree shapes and colors are ok. Jim said sky is too cool and I should worm and lighten it up. He demonstrated on my canvas, which I later destroyed mushing up with greens. He also commented the orange grass is too hot. I should have made more pinkish or something like that.
But after all, I think I picked a proper composition and made a good progress on learning plein air today.
I'm looking forward to the session tomorrow.

I also pushed the darkest dards further.

I worked on mainly sky part of this painting today. Almost done. I struggled with brush marks. But I guess this is better than "Sauvie Sky". I need more practice.

This was my first plein air session this year (since previous Guzzi Nevada didn't run) but it went ok. But when I came back home I found the surface of the canvas had hit the top part of the canvas holder multiple times, losing some paints. You can see it clearly on the bottom right corner of the photo below; losing the beach color. I need to come up with something to keep the canvas staying at the bottom by next time I go out painting.

Yes. This is my continuous effort to paint natual objects with unnatural shapes. Series' #2. The last one didn't go well but I haven't given it up. So I decided this format as my second effort. Inside the circle the colors would be monotonous, except the horse head.
We'll see how it goes.
