Plein Air 5-16-11 nocturne

8x6, oil. Plein air 5-16-11 nocturne. Painted this one tonight outside at the lake. Rather cliche scene and not dissimilar to some of my other attempts but sometimes the simplicity of a scene is difficult to resist. Regardless, it's always a challenge interpreting color in the dark but I feel that this one came out pretty close in color to what I thought I was painting/saw and then it somehow photographed pretty darned close to the color as well (just blurry).

Plein Air 5-12-11

This is from yesterday after lunch. The sun was straight up and made it difficult as this kind of lighting in the middle of the day flattens a scene. 8x6 oil. Google blogger was out of commission yesterday and part of today and didn't allow me to make this post until now. It was in a read-only mode.
