Maria’s Ranch Plein Air

Rex Beanland, Maria's Ranch, watercolour, 9 X 12








We were out at our friend Maria’s ranch near Millarville.  I did this plein air study.  I was trying to put into practice all the techniques I’ve been working on especially appropriate values from background to foreground and also connecting shapes.  It’s much harder to do when working on location and faced with the scope of nature.  Much easier when working in the studio from photos.  Anyway, it was a lot of fun and not too bad an effort.
