1596 Eagle's Roost and Indrio Savannas plein air alla prima
Painted this today, fellow and his dog Clyde came up and he said he liked the painting but I needed to paint the dead tree across the lake. I said it would be a half inch tall. He said, "Yes but its where the eagles sit!" I thought I would give it a try and I think it went pretty well, used my knife. The whole painting was painted with a painting knife, no brush at all. Beautiful day, I got there at 9:30 and there were no clouds at all. Then all of a sudden all these little puffy clouds started showing up. When I finished painting the sky to the west was full of clouds, looked like rain.
