Along the river

Painting Plein Air is so interesting. Sometimes there is so much to paint you are overwhelmed. Other times there is not much there or everything looks the same. You also never know what will catch your eye and excite you.
We were at a park that had a wonderful view of a Marina, houses, pelicans and distant views but it was these Palm Trees that caught my fancy. I think I am in a tree frame of mind.

Plein Air

Our group has been painting outside now for a few weeks and it has been heaven. It is so wonderful to be in the breezy shade lost in the feel of painting in the moment. We are so fortunate to have so many wonderful places to paint in our area. We were at a small park along the river called Pineapple Park which has many majestic oak trees with wonderful strong forms that capture your eye.
