A nocturne

8x10, oil

It's no Fredrick Remington, but it is my first nocturne en plein air. Those reds are definitely brighter than I could sense while out painting this scene.

An in-action photo. The camera flash makes everything look brighter. I set up under a security light and it was quite a challenge to see my color mixtures. This is when it pays to set up your palette the same way every time, so you can paint from instinct, in combination with sight.
