Taking the advice of my fellow bloggers, didn't paint plein air. Did the second best thing, took photo's of a beautiful place Brightwaters Bayshore. There is a lovely hamlet of magnificent homes and frozen pond with little white bridges. Took so many shots, even hockey players, that I will do in the future. I worked from my ipad, closest thing to painting from life. Happy we went out on the photo shoot on Sunday, because Monday all the snow was gone. The temps have been frigid on Long Island, so until it gets a bit warmer I am housebound, working from my sketches and photos. Also I will be doing some still life paintings.
All in all it is great practice no matter what the reference is, as long as we have a brush or pencil in hand we are happy. Happy Painting to all.
