As promised, here is painting number two! I am continuing to experiment with the Aches Oil Painting Paper. I am also experimenting with composition.
As you may know from previous blog posts, I love painting vineyards when the leaves are changing. In the past, I seem to have favored a landscape orientation when painting vineyards. Recently, I received a request that requires a portrait orientation instead. I would love to be doing these studies on location in plein air, but I don’t think there are any leaves left on the vines. Instead, I am re-examining other vineyard paintings I have done to see how they would work as a portrait. I prefer this to using photographs.
