Liner Crazy

A quick post on the weekend’s plein air. I bought a liner brush last week and though I did not use it I had some fun with it touching these two 11 x 14s up after hours of frustrating effort trying to get those stick trees in just right. I think I overdid it a bit but I enjoyed the free feeling and if I temper myself I think I can make it work in my tool box. The top painting was done Sunday on Vickery Creek. I blogged a few times about this wonderful stretch of  water so I will not repeat myself. It’s been cloudy for the last few weeks but I do like the browns and grays in this.

At the bottom a view of  one of the many restored Polk St. historic homes just West of the Square in Marietta. This is from a park across the street that John Guernsey paints often. It’s one of the locations he uses for teaching. I’m tempted to cut this down to a square 11″  because it really has way too much going on and I’d like to center the view in on the alley. John would not like the liner work.
