PLEIN AIRE PAINTING INSPITE OF THE WEATHER


Hello Dear Friends,
The unsettled weather did not deter a few of us this morning.  We set up under cover of the picnic pavilion at Garst Mill Park in Roanoke.  The weather changed from cloudy to partly cloudy to sunny and then raining with the sun shining and back to clouds




Mary Anne set up looking towards the path to the tennis court area.  She brought a well-organzied box filled with little covered containers of acrylic paint.  There is a photo with a closer look at the box.



Linda set up and looked directly across the path to the wooded area.

Judy placed her easel at the opposite end of the pavilion (west?) and painted the early changes of color in the leaves of the large trees by the path.  She painted three “timed” studies to capture the scene without too many details.

Despite the weather conditions our pre-planning for cover worked well as we all enjoyed a successful morning of painting topped off with a yummy lunch out.  

We hope for better weather next week so check back!


Happy Trails
