Oil Painting: Moon Over Meadow

Posted on Updated on

14 by 10 inches, oil on hardboard

Whoo! Another gorgeous morning. I spent about 2 hours in the Grove, Glenview’s outdoor history and nature museum. I walked around quite a while looking for a view that was a little wild and woodsy, but with simple forms. The moon caught my eye. I followed the steps Laurel Daniel laid out in a recent post: block in, upright plane, ground plane, sky plane, refinement. Not sure why I feel so out of control painting outside. At one point I felt like I was mixing cake batter on the panel. The photo has a lot of glare. I may repost it later, but I’ve put off my chores long enough.
