Downtown Detroit from Lake Muskoday, Belle Isle State Park
- Painted en plein air on 7/20/20 at Belle Isle State Park
- Lake Muskoday
- Downtown Detroit
While I typically prefer to take in the sounds around me while I paint en plein air, I do often rely on music to get me into the right head space leading up to a painting session; however, on this day in particular, my thoughts were scattered in many directions and I decided to bring my headphones with me out into the field. I listened to the album "The Three E.P.'s" by The Beta Band on repeat and I feel that their music influenced the aesthetic qualities of the sky and clouds. The palette that I used is based on Goethe's Serious color scheme.
