On the Outskirts-12x16

If you like this one let me know and i'll give you its availability and price
Jimmy C and i both painted this plein air several weeks ago. i'm just getting around to tweaking it and getting it posted. i liked the red/green scheme and the light on this old building on the outskirts of Beaufort going towards Bettie and Sea Level. isnt that a cool shadow where the hole in the roof is?

Mike- these are great. What colors do you use for your greens?

thanks anonymous!

kathy- i use two reds (cad red light, and alizarin crimson) two yellows (yellow ochre and cad yell light) three blues (ult, turquoise, and cobalt) sap green, orange (hue) and cobalt violet.
i make sure that every clump of trees has a different temperature bend to it. that way they look varied. some i mix yellow and blue, some i use sap green with cool red in the shadows, cobalt violet. use orange on some light shapes and yellow in some, and yellow ochre in others. of course graying and cooling the furthe trees. hope that helps
oh yeah.can you send me an invoice for what i owe you up to this point for the figure lessons. 305 kennys ave holly ridge nc 28445. i'm heading to the cape end of this month. maybe we can get a coke when i'm going thru providence. what you think? if so i can pay you then, or now. whatever you'd like.

And thanks to you and Justin for the compliment!
