Paint Out

IMG_1866A week ago, I joined a group to paint at a beautiful park, Olompali Park in Novato. Thrilling to be out on such a gorgeous Northern California spring day.

I was able to paint three small studies. Today I finished larger paintings referring to two of the three. Though I lost some of the energy in my second tree painting, it’s been a great learning painting. And one thing I’ve learned is I want to bring the works closer to finish, in the field. Nothing beats standing in the weather, observing!

  2. Passed by there a million times, noting every time, “I gotta stop and go in there one of these days.” Thanks for the sneak peek! Glad you’re posting these again. I’ve missed them; thought I maybe fell off your email list or something…
