Plein Air Painting

This past weekend we did the last camping trip of the season. The area was gorgeous with all the fall colors! Had warm temps the first two days but the last day the weather changed and became cold and windy. The next day when we were leaving we had to pack up in the rain! 🤪

I had to paint sitting inside the UTV because I forgot the connecting piece to my tripod. (Left it on the camera). It was all good because it protected me somewhat from the cold winds.

Painting beginnings

Here’s the beginning where I’m sketching the scene on a piece of acetate to lay out my composition.


Plein Air Painting

You can see how bundled up I was. Not the most comfortable way to paint!


St. Joe River

And this is the scene I was painting. It’s a part of the St Joe River. I got all my base layers in and took a good amount of reference photos to finish in the studio. All in all a great trip! 😊
