Happy Fathers Day

5x7 plein air oil sketch 
6x8 plein air oil sketch

Yesterday we had the garden plein air event.  I was assigned to a lovely garden.  I did a quick oil sketch, more for color notes so that I can continue at home.  I also started one of her lovely house and flowers that will be worked on this week.  I asked if I could return to do more plein air and she said yes.  Very exciting.

    1. Hi Michael,

      Thank you for the visit and I hope the same for you. Where does the time go, we are in the middle of a heat wave and it's way to hot to paint outdoors. Hope the weather is better in England. Love your latest post, you oil is wonderful.

      All the best to you,
      Joan
