As my ongoing journey to learn to paint oils continues with a weekend of plein air painting in the crisp late autumn air on Mount Weather, I was encouraged by some of the results. I am still struggling with the finish of the pieces but the color is better and I think I am handling the start of the process better. I am doing what Carlson says I am just trying to work tone to tone. Well here they are. All are on linen archival canvas panels.
