from the Top by Carol McGill
Oil 12 x 12
 
Venice Beach is open, and I went down to paint before the heat of the day - 90. Even in the morning, paint was sticking to the palette, drying in the sun. I used my palette knife to form the tree, finding the movement of the wind.

Fire Above by Carol McGill
Oil 8 x 6
 
This clump of fire flowers is also in my yard, but at eye level and above. It seems to gravitate to the shadows - I guess that is why the flower is so bright? Definitely an eye catcher.

Dr Seuss would love to see all the WHO's that live in my yard! They bob and flourish wherever the lawnmower misses.

Biography
 



Carol McGill,  "Painting in the Spirit"
Going outside to begin a plein air piece is still a time of excitement and enchantment for me.  Seeing God’s beauty bloom daily invites me to come and sit with my greatest teacher – and learn to see:  the color, the contrast, the light, the fleeting moment.  Thin layers have become thick quick strokes of paint applied with a palette knife.  I still tone the canvas, if you will, but I do it while creating a tonal under painting.  This is a quick approach to block in the shapes and values and speed me along as I capture the moment.   I am ever on my journey of learning what the paint can do, and what I, the artist can do.
