hit me on the head

40x30 oil on linen
I don't know why I haven't been doing it all year. What have I been thinking?!
I always use my small plein air paintings as ideas for my larger oils, so why haven't I been working with all of my memory pieces? They really are the best for exploring vibration. What can I say? Sometimes the most obvious things take the longest to find.
I am still working on this one, inching my way forward.

"I am never in a hurry to reach details. First and above all I am interested in the large masses and the general character of a picture; when these are well established, then I try for subtleties of form and color. I rework the painting constantly and freely, and without any systematic method." quote- Camille Corot

Great idea, Loriann. This painting has a wonderful feel already with that expansive sky.

The colors in your oil painting are really beautiful. Is the size of the canvas in inches or cm?
