Plein Air Practice


This coming weekend I'm taking a workshop with Colin Page, and I'm VERY excited! I believe we'll be doing plein air, and I'm a liiiiittle rusty with that, so I thought I'd do a study every day this week to kind of warm up. Of course the weather promises to be grey, misty, rainy and chilly (CHILLY! It's JUNE!) this week. So today I set up in my back entry and painted the view from there. I'm at the bottom of a hill, so that in itself is a challenge. The quality of the photo is bad - overexposed on the real view, very dark on the painting. Ah well, a long way to go! Pin It

  1. You go girl.
    Doing it is what matters as you pointed out to me.

    I wiped off 6 paintings in since Friday, and finally, after that many wipes I threw the board in the trash!
    Freedom!
