More Oil Sketches

I had a chance durring my hiatus to actualy go OUTSIDE and paint wih my wife and Frank Serrano.
Frank is a superb plien air painter and I always enjoy picking his brain on how to simplify when out in the field. Time is the enemy when you paint outdoors. The sun is always shifting so you have to learn to capture what you see FAST! I'm amazed at how fast Joy. works. A long time ago I knew that whoever I married would have to be an artist. Besides being a fantastic partner she is extremely helpful to have around when I'm in a jam while painting. She is my extra pair of eyes and can help me solve problems that might take me hours to figure out. Color, values, etc.
