Just In Time Plein Air Painting by Robert Matheson

Just In Time

Size: 12"x24"
Material:   Oil on acrylic primed and toned panel
Year: 2016

This painting was completed during a 4-hour Quick Draw event at the San Diego Botanic Gardens. The painting is fairly large for a plein air piece, so I moved quickly. First was a bright acrylic block-in, followed by layers of oil paint to build up the surface texture. The painting gradually transitions from cooler colors in the background and sky, to warmer, more saturaged colors in the foreground. The last step was to add some free-floating yellow flowers throughout. Completed on Saturday, April 19th, 2016.
