Meadow Croft Plein Air

On Tuesday, the PALS group met with SBAA group and we all painted at the Meadow Croft Estate.
I used my Tom Brown pochade and enjoyed doing this little 5x7 oil sketch. I did have a bee keep me company, but can't complain, I was the interloper. Happy painting everyone.

Couldn't get a good picture of the painting, I shot indoors and the the painting was still wet. The one on the pochade is more accurate.

Lunch Time

Several weeks ago, my group went plein air at the Suffolk Farm. Due to a bad throat infection and cough, I was unable to go. However I did take photos a few days later. This painting was an inspiration from my dear friend Vic. Happy painting everyone.

My Favorite Tree

On Monday, I began a plein air ritual. Painting and completing a painting outdoors. I want to train my eye to see and paint the light and shadows. It was left as is, and I will continue to include this practice at least some of the time.

Tomorrow is another outdoor gathering at the Meadow Croft Vineyard. Today it was the Mascot Marina. I will finish those plein air works in the studio.
Happy painting everyone.
