I have been painting outside on location every week. And these paintings have been drying in the studio and some of them I'd like to touch-up. Sometimes when you paint outside, you think you get the values right and it looks OK there - outside - and then you come home and look at it indoors......and it looks so different! Sometimes too dark, sometimes too light....funny.
Anyway, here are two that I did recently and have not touched up yet.

I just did a big, long post on the Reno Tahoe Plein Air Painters Blog. Not pictures of me or my work so much, but great pictures of our day painting at different locations. Check it out!
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!
