Basement Painting

This one I painted last night. It is the view looking down into our basement. It was really kind of tricky since I was backed up to a wall so I couldn't step back while painting and was working under an incandescent bulb. So...I didn't quite know what I'd end up with as far as color and perspective. Looking at it now, there are some things I could change and still might. 14x11, oil.

Plein Air 1-15-13

I haven't been outside to paint since beginning of December and had a chance early this morning. I also tried out some new bristle brushes I received for Christmas. They worked well this morning and during the cold months when the paint is more difficult to move due to the coldness, the bristles seem to push and pull the paint more effectively than my usual mongoose hair brushes. This one is quick and dirty and not quite fully resolved. A bit rusty not painting outside for a month and a half. 10x8, oil.
