Painting in the Park

7 7/8 x 7 7/8   oil on panel

On my first painting outing of the season, I joined members of Plein Air Washington Artists at St. Edwards State Park. It was one of those wonderful sunny days with exciting colors and shadow patterns in every direction. It was hard to decide what would be the most fun to paint.

After a small color study of one of the pathways into the woods, I turned around and saw this person painting into the sunlight. The way she stood was so delightful, I pulled out a new panel and blocked in the composition. I had to leave for a family gathering before the painting was finished, but I captured enough to finish it in the studio later. Another wonderful day.
