Acrylic on canvas board 8″x10″
This weekend we had a Frost Festival in our town which included a Plein Air event. It was a bit gloomy but we still had snow on the ground.

My daughter and I painted with artists in our area, inside the club house at the Dakota Nature Park, where we had a nice view of frozen ponds and bridges to paint our pictures. It was a fun day for all of us! We got our paintings done before lunch and met everyone for BBQ.

Frost Fest Plein Air (Part 1)

image

I went to our Nature Park to do a little plein air watercolor painting. I wanted to steak out the locations for our Frost Fest Plein Air Outing this weekend. I will probably do an acrylic painting on Saturday. It will be nice this weekend too, but hopefully the snow won’t be all melted.

Storm on the Horizon – Restart Underpainting WIP02

image

I’m on vacation a good part of July, but back at home at the moment. I went to make adjustments on my underpainting of the first version, and realized the lightly textured board was probably not going to be to my liking for this. Here is a redo of my underpainting on stretched canvas 18″x24″ I like the new composition better, I wanted more sky,a bigger storm cloud, and a lower horizon.
