Brookwood Hall Plein Air


8x10 oil sketch on location. Yesterday was a beautiful day. We all gathered at Brookwood Hall by the lake.

I did this sketch. Taking the advice of Bruce, Mariano, and Vic. I am not touching my plein air sketches. But I will work on larger pieces from my sketch. Happy Painting everyone.

Thanks to my cousin Sue, I was able to transport my wet panel using the Travelers cocoon. A birthday surprise she sent me.

  2. Hi Joan!... Good for you on this one! A real sense of fall in the colour used here in this one! Lovely iondeed!

    I could swear this painting was completed at Storring's Bridge here in Canada.

    Glad you are leaving the plein air paintings be! Turn them to the wall and revisit... if you must a week or two later!

    Good Painting!
    Warmest regards,
    Bruce

  3. Hi Joanie,

    You really get a feel of the fall season in your painting. Brillant colors and the setting is beautiful. I'm glad the cocoon was helpful.

  4. Hi Joan.
    Wonderful painting. I`m glad that you are not going to alter your sketches my friend because they are brilliant as they are. It is true what our peers say about plein Air paintings, and that is The best paintings are done plein Air. and yours are no exception. I would say this is one of your best as far as I am concerned. Keep going Joan. All the best.
    Vic.
    p.s. Happy birthday my friend.

  6. Hi Bruce,
    Once again your words are very encouraging to me. Yes great idea, turning it to the wall. Just did a watercolor study from my sketch. I will be over to visit your blog. Have a great weekend.

  7. Hi Sue,

    Thank you, I wish you were on Long Island so we could paint plein air together. I will talk to you later.

  8. Hi Vic,

    Thank you my friend for the encouragement on my plein air work. I only wish I could get out more often. How about you Vic. I love what you did with your 1hr. quickie, they are great fun. Yours happen to turn out exceptionally well. I'll be looking forward to your next post.

    All the best to you

  9. Joan, I agree that fresh and direct plein air works like yours should never be retouched. This lovely painting can truly give birth to a large one!
