Plein Air Paint Out -Day 7

Today we were at Fairmont park, its a beautiful park with lakes and wonderful trails covered by mature trees. The weather has taken a turn for the COLDER! Brrr, we have a storm coming in and the temps are supposed to drop into the 40's again for the daytime high! We all made a good college try at a painting but once the drizzle started most packed it up. I worked in watercolor too but it wasn't drying to well concidering. Jennifer and Chloe came with me today, even with her little pink sweater, Chloe never did stop shivering.

Tomorrow is the Quick draw and a crique of some of the painting we have produced this week. Should be fun, most have decided to paint in their cars since we are expecting a few inches of rain. I can't wait to see what we produce in our cars!

Been following your painting - know it must be very hard to paint in the cold, wind and rain. You seemed pretty discouraged the other day, but I am seeing a progression of getting better and more comfortable with it - your last two are wonderful. Today will be lousy in this rain - car painting, sounds interesting. Keep having fun with it.

I think you did some lovely pieces. Plein air painting is always a challenge. My siter had a friendly goose steal one of her brushes and run off with it. I had to laugh at someone falling into the lake. Like anything else, plein air gets easier the more often you do it. Have fun!
