more plein-airing

New gouache from my yard, and update on the last one. I'm learning a lot from the oil one, I think I'm like 10 hours into it...and I've been enjoying the process of evaluating spots of color and using a broken, impressionist treatment to achieve a greater sense of light. I'm also loading certain areas with pure color... maybe a dab or two where it's consistent with what I see, but it still adds to the color vibration. I'm conceiving the oil as a long term study in light, seeing how much information I can add without marring the big impression. C & C welcome
