Chadwick Park

Diane Mannion, 48 Chadwick Park, 8x10" o/c plein air

Fine morning painting at Chadwick Park, Englewood.  This one's 100% plein air!  Did not touch up later.  A complicated scene, impossible to render all the clutter and jumbled details, a good exercise in simplification.  Like how it captured the moment and feeling of the place.  Painted on a wiped off demo, used purple and magenta for drawing and massing under the trees for the underpainting.

Thank you so much, Maria. Amazing how many details I left out and it still looks like something. Maybe painting complicated scenes is the way to loosen up and simplify.
