Plein Air with R & F Pigment Sticks


"Simple Truth"- 6"x6" oil on panel


"Quiet Glow"-6"x6" oil on panel

Two small Plein air pieces completed this past weekend at my home. One at the pond and the other from the driveway because I liked what was left on the palette. One took about two hours and the other about two minutes. This was a test for using R & F pigment sticks as a Plein air medium. The only frustration was getting them out of the plastic tubes they are stored in. Easy to fix. Love the portability and the saturation. Applied with brushes and fingers. I'll use them again, but experiment with a bit of medium although these pigment sticks are fluid enough to use alone.
