Plein air

There's a lot of construction going on in our neighborhood so this was bound to happen. I finally got around to it! I wanted to paint the shapes of the backhoe and not do much with the background. This was fun as it went together like a jigsaw puzzle, painting one shape/color/value next to each other. I recently took some pics of construction workers while on the job and hope to experiment with some of those.

Fun piece!
I like the way you simplified the shapes and layered your colors.

Great painting Danny. You and William have inspired me to go down the road to the gravel pit to do some work! Fantastic!
