Well, painted some more on the figure at class last night. I was having a hard time getting the paint to blend and go on. I tried the Alkyd medium which was like honey. Not sure it works for me. It didn't seem to allow the paint to flow...however I may not have been using it right.

Got home last night at 11pm, got up at 6a.m. and Gerrie and I went to the park around the house. We were inspired by some of the blogs we like such as "Daily Painters", so we thought we would give it a try...so off we went this a.m. I found a spot and roasted in the sun.. We gave ourselves an hour for the painting...I had an appointment which cut our time short.

This is only the 2nd time in my life I've tried Plein Air. I hope to try it again and keep on learning. I did take a photo of the spot so I could finish it in the studio.

In case you can't tell what it is...Its holly hocks or some type of flowers by the edge of a pond/little lake with trees on the other side.

  1. This is a really good plein air piece or even a fancy air painting.
