Plein Painting in Camarillo
Hello Friends, I managed to go out painting this morning. I took some new tools with me. The first was a new Bag carrier/foldout chair called the Artcomber. It worked like a charm. The second was Gamblins FastMatte white paint, which was amazing, especially with the Liquin Impasto I am now using. The whites were crisp, sticky and dried in no time. Really useful for adding a more opaque highlight and keeping the paints from getting over muddy. The last was a new video camera so I could film the entire painting. It nearly worked, with the exception of the wrong exposure I chose wrong and the position of the camera, I nudged it half way through without realising and it ended up showing mostly my shoulder for the last half. I also need to use my external mic to make the sound clearer and less wind. Silly mistake but one I shall learn from. I hope you enjoy the blog and the final painting. Please let me know your thoughts.
