preparing canvas / end of summer: examples of inspirational sources / by Philip Tarlow

12:11 PM: we went on a trail walk this morning, so i'm getting somewhat of a late start. i'm preparing a 38x36" canvas for the next late summer painting. these paintings are directly inspired by plein air studies in gouache and oil and a series of 2014 collages on paper. the collages were also inspired by my plein air paintings, but not as obviously and directly.
