Oil study #153 - plein air

I was happy with this one until I got home and took another look at it: it was much too dark!

I usually put my canvas or panel on another, larger (black) panel to separate the painting from the surrounding scene. I read (Richard McKinley's blog) that if your paintings are consistently too dark, then you should try a white board! I'll have to remember that next time.
