Although this isn't about plein air painting, it's a piece of good news. I've just received word that I've had a painting juried into the 2008 Eastern Regional Oil Painters of America Exhibition. Here's the painting, which is a studio piece:
I did this in the studio over the winter, using photos and sketches. I thought you might enjoy seeing two of the compositional sketches, which include a design I didn't use:
And also a thumbnail color sketch, which is about 3"x3", in which I worked out my color scheme. I did it in pastel.
It's an honor to get into any OPA show, whether regional or national. Competition is stiff!
