Plein-Aire Painting Today
It is very close to my house, only a half hour away, but in all the time I have lived here, it has been off the radar. Somehow, now that I have this Porsche 944, I seemed to have permission. I was delighted to see that on the very day, the 944's were racing. Actually, I have never been to an Auto race track, ever. Porsche, Lamborghini and Corvettes at 100 plus miles an hour. Wow!
So back to being an artist. I get to the studio this morning and parked the car next to the barn and looked at it for moment and decided that it was the perfect subject to combined the enthusiasm. I went in and brought out my flash paint (vinyl base Gouache) and some 70# bristle board. I had to work fast as a thunder storm was threatening.
I want to do more of this.
