I am enjoying this learning process of repeatedly painting skies and sea with a very limited palette; especially challenging are the grey tones. With warm weather flirting with us, I am hoping to paint at the Lake in the near future.
I am gearing up for plein air painting. Soon I will be participating in an organized corporate plein air event, and I am rather nervous about it as I am not very familiar with the area, nor have I ever participated in an event where a painting must be completed and framed in one timed session (other than DPW, which is similar but not the same). I have been on several plein air painting trips, but there is no pressure to complete a painting in one day, when in fact, they are almost always completed in the studio.
I am up for the challenge, but decided I better paint a few landscapes before the big day. Here is my first.
