Crimson Hollyhocks

These crimson hollyhocks are absolutely knocking my socks off this year!  They rival any of the beauties I see each year in Door County!  Here, I'm taking a break from a commission to get my plein air fix for the day.  I'm working smaller than normal at 8x6, fitting the panel to my available painting window.  I begin my painting in those masses, first the reds, then then middle greens, and then the landscape around them.  I then go into each mass and lay in the other colors I see, both cool and warm, careful not to over think it.  I adjust my edges, and now it's out to dinner with my girls!  Painting number 1970 in 1970 days.
