"Beaver Dam Creek"


Today we painted plein air. It was a glorious day. The view was beautiful with the fall colors and magnificent sky. I recorded this 6x8 oil sketch, took pictures and will probably go back again to complete the painting.

  1. Hi Joan.
    A very clean dreamy painting. I like it, so
    simply done it looks as if it was easily done,
    but we all know it isn`t simple to paint.
    well done my friend, and all the best.
    Vic.

  8. Hi Kerri, thank you, painting plein air, that is exactly what my intention was, just to paint the color notes. Learned from Kevin McPherson.

    Happy painting,
    Joan
