"Sunday on 17th" and Jason Smith

"Sunday on 17th" Oil

I spent quite a bit of time this past summer plein air painting. "Sunday on 17th" is part of a new series I'm working on based on my summer outings in downtown Denver. I'll be posting more of these in the next few days.

By the way, I'd like you to notice a link I added to the right for Jason Smith. I've had lots of issues with photographing my artwork over the years and it's still a work in progress, but Jason has helped me quite a bit. The link will take you to his e-book, which is aptly titled "Exposing Yourself: An Artist's Guide to Digital Imaging." I found his site through Carol Marine and immediately purchased the book. Boy, did I learn a lot! I've since purchased some new lights and a polarizing filter per his recommendations and have been amazed with the results. (By the way, Jason likes to do things as cheaply and pragmatically as possible, so his advice is not only accurate but reasonable.) I hope you'll check it out.
