"Chapel Dulcinea" --- Sold

Click Here to Bid

When I was in Scottsdale, AZ, my friend Li and Mark told me that there is beautiful place in south Austin called Chapel Dulcinea. Coincidently, the local Plein Air Austin group had a paint out there this morning. I went out with them and did this small oil sketch. The weather was great. I had a wonderful time. I started to have some feelings about plein air painting now. My value range is improving. My colors are more under control. The paint quality has not reach to the level I like yet, but it is getting closer. In a nutshell, I feel good about this one.

This is lovely. I like your plein air paintings. Your brush strokes are loose and more impressionistic. Very nice!

This has such a wonderful fresh feeling. There exist a dance between chapel and atmosphere that is captivating! It brings life to the chapel. Which is interesting, because people who come to the chapel get inspired to live life and its resonating out of the entire building!

Qiang -- this is a great plein aire painting -- it has a lot of guts and feeling to it -- I love to do 7x5 paintings -- they are quick -- and they either work or they don't -- this one did -- I am also painting from life more and more and more! I am a member of OPA -- forgot to go to the workshops at the SAS where I also teach -- dah! would love to paint with you sometime!
