Plein Air Painting of a 1903 Cabin in Cotter, Arkansas

Plein Air Painting of 1903 cabin in Cotter, Arkansas

This was my second sublime morning of plein air painting during the Plein Air on the White River competition in Cotter, Arkansas.  Shortly after the sun rose on this 1903 cabin, I found my eye filled with gratitude at every detail of this forsaken cabin that cried out for an Andrew Wyeth-style dry brush study.  I only had about 90 minutes to work on it, but I am persuaded that I will give this subject some serious studio scrutiny in the immediate days ahead.  These kinds of subjects are too elusive these days.  I cannot find them very easily.

Thanks for reading.

    Thank you, Nancy. I really got lost in this subject, and would have preferred to spend the entire day gazing at it, studying it, and trying new things. I guess I’ll have to do that in the studio.
