Here are some one or two-hour field studies I have done recently.
Spring on the Mountain Slope 8 x 16 oil
Yesterday my group and I painted Watson Lake first, then this lovely mountain slope that was in total bloom with Mules Ears - a yellow daisy like wildflower. It was getting dark and cold and trying to rain, so we painted very, very fast!
This painting study is of Watson Lake. One of our painter's brought her dog, who posed for me! I know it doesn't "add" anything to this painting, but I just felt like putting her in at the last minute. Gotta have fun sometimes!
This little painting study was done at the Mt. Rose Meadows a week ago. Everyone did the view of the meadow, which was lovely, but I was drawn to the light and dark patterns of this forest view.
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!
