Jewel Lake, Tilden Park
I have been experimenting with a wet-in-wet technique in the studio. The idea is; you wet an entire section of the paper and then drop pigment into it with more attention to effect than subject painted. I have been reluctant to use this technique in it's entirety when plein air painting because of it's unpredictability. But my intention of practicing this, has always been to apply it. In this painting I used the drop-pigment into wet paper technique, but then dry brushed over it in some areas to get a dense-yet fresh style. The "yet fresh" part didn't work as well as I would have wished; but it was a wonderful holiday spent with familys from all over the world.
