Two Sketches

Trying my hand at plein air painting. I painted these one sunny day last fall. Was underwhelmed with my results, but I'll keep practicing. 

"Trees Lining a Street" Acrylic, 9x12"
I loved painting this tree's highlights and shadows. Sap Green and Yellow Ochre may be the best combination of colors available in my paint box.

"Powerlines" Acrylic, 9x12"
Haven't touched this one since I pulled it off my little french easel outside. Acrylics, again. I think I was hoping that by using acrylics I'd be forcing myself to paint quickly and instinctively, which worked to an extent, I suppose.
