I’m back in the atmosphere…of Plein Air painting that is. It did take a push and a shove but I am getting there. So I am learning to make the most of my time to enjoy what I love most. Painting and visiting new places…so en Plein Air it is!
Today, we were graced with awesome weather and even a spot of sun now & then. So I ventured out to the stomping grounds of older Austin – Hyde Park. Oh, but what will I paint? There was so much to choose from, I finally just started painting where I was standing.
The trick is to find an agreeable spot, off the sidewalk jet not obscuring the painting view. The limited sunlight did prove challenging in mixing accurate colors. But I mustered my brushed and pushed paint.
The neighborhood is so active and hospitable! I was so busy painting, I did not have time to take in all the yummy smells from the well-known restaurants. There is so much more to capture. Yes, I shall go back.
For now, I hope you enjoy my posts and stay tuned for future painting ventures.
