29th Day-Plein Air

There’s just nothing like painting outdoors, although todays conditions weren’t ideal. A noisy neighbor using some kind loud saw and music playing. Who needs music when there are birds and the breeze to listen to. A nice little lesson from an old AGOP member who now resides in Texas. The one thing I will remember is him saying that he thinks some judges have a preconceived idea of what a Plein Air painting should look like and that in essence that idea causes all Plein Air to look alike. I think he’s right here. I think that my recent rejections were at least partially due to this fact. My colors were not the usually overabundance of greens that every one uses, because that what they physically see. I tend to paint how I FEEL out in the open air and about what I am looking at. This one is a little closer to the norm…
