Plein Air – May 22

Plein Air May 22 – Off Pines Road; Oil on Canvas Panel 9″ x 12″

Arrived at this site about 9am. Wish I had been there about an hour earlier, the shadows would have created a more dramatic composition. Oh well. I painted this view looking to the south. Another painter from the Eagles Nest group was a few feet behind me painting the view to the west. A little chilly in the shade but a fun morning of painting with friends.

Plein air at the scout camp again. This time we all found the site without incident. Another fine day of painting. The painting of the shed was done on a panel toned in Rose Madder, a lively, pinkish red. The rose showing through the greens really pops.

The Eagle’s Nest group planned a paint out for a “hidden” location. I have traveled along this road hundreds of times, but never knew that there was a scout cabin here. I always saw fields and at this location, some overgrowth.

The directions were fairly good, but it seems that all of us drove right past the entrance before backtracking to enter the dirt drive. Interesting location which should yield some good scenes as the colors change as we move through the phases of autumn. One catch, a barbed wire fence surrounds the main field. Extra caution required, one of the wires is electric. One of our crew got quite a shock.
