working on motion 23; a larger version of plein air 10/7/14 / by Philip Tarlow

2:37 PM: today i began work on something different in my motion series: a larger version of a previous plein air oil. but this time, instead of riffing & creating something quite different, i'm actually making a larger version of the original 16x16" plein air oil painted in 2014.

it's an interesting experiment, and one that's a lot more fun for me than i had expected. it may well lead to a new direction in my motion series, but it's a bit too early to tell.mi'm already getting a lot of value studying this earlier plein air painting & connecting with the spontaneity of what happens when i'm out at the creek, but in the relative peace & quiet of my studio,
