Green Island, block in on yellow underpainting
6"x8" oil on canvas panel
In Anne Blair Brown's class last week our first exercise was a plein air burnt sienna block in, which Anne adjusted for each student. On mine she added the dark sideways "V" in the left foreground to balance the island in the upper right. Yesterday I did a quick block in of the same subject over yellow, thinking that would work nicely with the fog that had been descending since morning, but I'd hardly gotten started when the fog completely obscured the island!
