Summer Fields-16"x20" acrylic on canvas

This plein air painting is done with a new technique that I am trying. I went out today to be instructed by Dan Rupe, who is a well known Artist in Hudson, Provincetown & L.A. He is known for his special technique of under painting the canvas red. I did not underpaint my canvas red this time because I already had an underpainted green canvas - which is what is seen here. I welcome this influence. I like Dan's wild color usage. This one is just a loosening up first-go. It was fun and I felt taken away by the process. I look forward to more of this as the summer goes on. Cheers to his name to see his work!
