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! 😊

“Fly Fishing” oil on panel

 

Fly-Fishing

Standing in a creek casting a fly in hopes of catching the big one is the ultimate fun! This painting was a joy to paint and is lovely to gaze upon with all its dark jewel tones. It’s truly one of my favorite paintings!

The Bridge at Buttonhook Original Oil painting

There’s a lovely old footbridge which connects the mainland to a small island on our lake that’s fun to explore. At the top of the island is a small bench overlooking the bay where one can sit and watch boats come in and out. I love the look of this bridge with its old worn boards and the grasses beneath it. This is a small works oil painting on panel and is available in the shop.
