Some Thoughts on Plein Air References

Leslie on location at Point of Pines
Salem, Ma

About two years ago my friend Leslie and I started going out painting regularly. This was the start of my personal campaign to start making an art habit.  I soon found out, I painted too slow, or concentrated on too much detail or what ever the reason, I needed to also take a reference photo to finish up in my studio.

Today, I decided to try to paint the same scene again from that reference photo. I was interested in comparing the two paintings to see how I've changes, and how I am the same.

Change indicates growth where sameness indicates style.
