Fall is high season for plein air painters, and I’ll be outside as much as humanly possible to capture the changing light and colour.
Sunday I met up with three other painters at a spot that was new to me and exciting – but that was 20 degrees colder than the day before. Sheila and I were troopers and toughed out the weather, while the other two stayed warm in the car and threw out questions: “Why did you use that colour there?”, and “What are you doing, painting with a Q-Tip?”. HA. They’ve all been plein air students of mine in the past, but are seriously coming into their own. I think collectively we could make a great Q&A video!
Here’s the resulting painting after some studio tweaks:
“Tucked In” will be on display – and available – in November at my solo show in downtown Georgetown, Ontario.
And if you’re interested in joining us but have never learned to paint en plein air, good news! I have workshops coming up in October through Credit Valley Artisans (Halton Hills, Ontario). 3 Sundays, $30 each and you can attend one or all. Shoot me a message for more details!
Yours, from my cozy fireplace,
