California Hills

California Hills
8x10 original oil painting

I find painting pure landscape paintings similar to painting abstract paintings.  The lost and found edges are very important to define shapes that suggest a tree, a cloud or a path.  I took Randy Sexton's plein air workshop this summer and he talked about lost and found edges and manipulating your brush to create a variety of edges. While I was working on the painting above, I kept concentrating on the way I was handling the brush.
