Polo – Plein Air May 15

Barb Painting in Polo – Plein Air May 15; Oil on Canvas Panel 9″ x 12″

The Eagle’s Nest group decided to paint in Polo this day. The plan was to paint at or around Jan’s house. In my search for the days painting, I came upon this scene. I liked the shapes, the lines and the values. Thank goodness that Barb had selected this spot. Her position made for a great center of interest. Once Barb realized that she was a part of my painting, she managed to stay in this spot until I was nearly done with work. Other members were amazed that I got Barb to stay still that long.

The great part is that Barb finished three small watercolors while I did this painting. Barb admitted that having to stay in that one place forced her to paint a couple subjects that she probably would never have tackled. Barb was happy that she tried, and succeeded with the small works.
