Today’s plein air

While “glamping” this week, some plein air time today. Our beautiful Hydrangeas. 12 x 9. Oil on linen panel. Critiques welcome and appreciated.

Plein air “hike”

Well, I packed up all my plein air gear for the first time, (literally, I packed my backpack!) and took a long hike to the patio. Just had to get outside and try my hand at plein air painting. Good practice for dialing in what I may need for a much longer hike. 🙂 I really enjoyed it! I knew I would.
Anyway, some marigolds for my first trek. I didn’t finish it. Although I may take the hike again tomorrow night, or finish it up in the studio. Either way, I haven’t painted since April so it’s good to get the brushes back into my hands again. After all, I still have a piece to finish… right Nick and Jayla?

Charcoal Portrait study

On my easel today. Portrait study of #ekaterinaselivanova on Instagram. Could have gone a bit further with this, but I kind of like the simplicity. Might go into it a bit more tomorrow.
