Plein Air Buddies
August 22, 2013 § 6 Comments
Wednesday I met at the Duck Pond at Battlepoint Park…
…for three hours of creative bliss with my Plein Air buddies.
Here’s my paint palette of acrylics dobbed on a wet paper towel. Big red water bucket for vigorous brush-rinsing to get all the color out. Sounds a little like ducks flapping their wings but gets the job done. Also helps me stay loose, go quickly, not think so much. Under the palette are my Venetian Red gesso’d post cards blue-taped to a piece of foam board.
Truth be told, I only painted for one of the three hours. I’m a restless sort outdoors. Need to move. But I always come prepared to paint prolifically, ever hopeful. I made two more 4 x 6 inch post cards to add to my project, Post Cards On the Loose. That makes four! more than I would have made without my Plein Air Buddies. Thank you, Lynnette, PC & Lynn! See you next week. – Pierr
