I recently connected with another local artist who is interested as much as I am in plein air painting and getting better. Here is a painting from our second outing. Both of us feel a little rusty and the first painting from that outing was not something I wanted to post. But I'll share this one.
It is of peonies, orange poppies, and a silver colored "Lambs Ears" plant in front. We enjoyed the Arboretum and the plants that were in bloom and we will go there again to paint. Lots of big, shady trees to paint under and keep cool from the sudden summer heat.
Welcome to my art blog! This is where I share my explorations and learning experiences in pastel, watercolor and oil painting. I have had this blog for about six or more years. I am currently entering many national and regional juried art shows. I have a website and sell my work from there as well. I started a group called Reno Tahoe Plein Air Painters a year ago and it has grown to about 40 active painters! Each year brings new challenges and exciting opportunities. I have made many friends among other art bloggers and enjoy visiting their blogs. I hope you enjoy your visit here, and click on the links to my website and the plein air painters to see more!
