Plein Air Thursdays

We had our inaugural Plein Air Thursday meeting today! 
(Be in touch if you are interested in joining us!)  
We met on the Driftway in Scituate at 4:30 and set up facing the sun. 
(As far away from the sea breeze coming off the ocean as we could.) 

Demo  #1
9 x 12 
Demo #2
10 x 10 
The lesson here was to capture the sense of time and place. 
(Very early spring in NE, chilly late afternoon, near the ocean.)
I saw lots of muted purples and warm yellows and stayed with that.  

Talking and painting at the same time 
For our first time "out" as a group, 
I'd say it was a success! 

We were all happy as clams 
until the temperature suddenly dropped 15 degrees! 
Session was aborted by 6:00!

  1. You are a trooper! The paintings do capture the time of year. It was definitely your deliberate choice of color.
