Plein Air at Llyod Park
Here are my two attempts at plein air painting today before I take them in the studio to touch up. It didn't start out such a great morning as I laboured in my winter boots, coat, mitts and ear muffs but I ended the day in with a sun visor and short sleeves...go figure. That's our Alberta weather for you. It was fun painting with the girls. Sharon Williams is giving a workshop today and tomorrow on plein air painting...certainly a different kettle of fish ( does that make sense?) than what I'm used to. No palette knife...brush only... again a little different for me. I'm so used to thick paint and I'm surprised how little I actually use with a brush.Calling for sunshine tomorrow!
