9.8.13 n. crestone creek 16x16" oil on linen / by Philip Tarlow

9/9/13 yesterday was my second pleine air foray, to n. crestone creek. visit the pleine air page under recent work to see how this work has evolved since the fall of 2012 and earlier. there is a distinct shift, influenced by the large format work i've been producing in the studio, away from my previous palette of earth tones. 

this one had a bit of green on the upper right that wasn't working, so i went back into it this morning & reduced the intensity. i think it worked. 

it's very exciting to be back at the creek and to be working once again in oil on linen.
