Taste of Italy – Plein Air – Oil on Canvas Panel – 8 x 10

Helen decided to go painting with me this day. We went to a location in downtown Rockford which I felt might offer a good design opportunity. A bit too busy. We ventured over to a neighborhood north of downtown, but Helen felt that our presence might not go too well. We ventured further north to check out a marina. Unfortunately, we would not have access to the boats in dock. Ventured to a park which did not offer anything of interest. Getting late. Traveled over to Sinnissippi with thoughts of capturing a good view of the river. As we pulled into the parking lot, I noticed this refreshment stand. As I checked out the location, I realized that it could work. It was getting late morning. Sun was getting high in the sky, minimizing shadows and bleaching out colors. Got this done in under 1-1/2 hours.
