This plein air (75-90% completed at Smith Rocks last fall) needed some touch-up. When I found the reference photo, I looked closely and there were people at the base of the cliff. It intrigued me. Could I get them in, with just a few brushstrokes. I used the Ken Auster technique...blocking them in with a neutral dark gray and then just dabs of color to indicate a blue and a white shirt. Lots of fun to do,and I think it provided a focal point for the picture.
Will post more pictures when I get time. Rushing for 3 shows right now.
