I did this plein air as I started out on my exciting adventure to Hana. I know this has pretty much been all I've talked about! Then I used the plein aire painting to paint from in my studio. I find every time I repaint a scene, even if I try to do it exactly, I will lose some of the better elements. I felt the plein air values were confusing making the subject less distinguishable. Another problem I had here was I am completely out of watercolor paper so I repainted on top of another loser painting and I lost the crisp bright white underneath. I am happy with this even so. I've spent a lot of time last week, working on the paintings I brought back from Hana and feel they are all they are going to be. I wonder who I can inspire to travel to Hana Highway so we can paint more bridges?
Sorry for the tilted horizon, a definite no no, but I love the sun on these 2, my Son and his Gal.
