Plein Air 8-28-11

Plein air 8-28-11. Oil, 8x6. I did this one at sunrise this morning. A lot of purple for me but I didn't mind. I used the limited palette again and this ended up only being about a 40 minute painting. Very simple, but that was my approach. I worked on keeping the design simple, the number of colors simple but still harmonious and then painted what was in front me. I haven't painted one I've like since July so I'm rather pleased. Ask me again tomorrow and I might hate it!

Lake Geneva Art in the Park

This past weekend, Saturday and Sunday, I participated in Art in the Park. I've never done an art fair before. It was pretty exhausting and overall a good experience. I ended up receiving a certificate of merit for my work. I was the only painter to receive an award so that felt good.
