Even though the weather has been a bit overcast and I have much to do back in the studio, it's easy to play a little hooky. I can easily blame it on my plein air "high" because the kids are back in school and that gives me full permission to go out and paint ... but just as long as I'm back in time to pick them up from school. I continue to return to my favorite place along with several other artists, and every day the greens have noticeably been turning warmer.
Above is the same scene. The first one I cranked out in a quick 10 minutes on Friday and the one below it was painted today for the bulk of my outing. I turned my tripod a full 180 and painted this quick little one below before dashing home to pick up the kids.
