Of course the sun played hide and seek behind the clouds. And the mosquitoes had a picnic on my arms but overall it was a lovely day. I really liked how the sun lit up the tops of the hedge rows. Notice how the painting seems so much warmer in the sunlight compared to the studio photo below.
Plein Air Tree Study

oil on canvas board
We had a new person join our group yesterday, Jackie Newell. Jacki does wonderful plein air work. Our plein air group must be getting very brave. Next week we all decided to paint in downtown Omaha at the Old Market...at lunch time...yikes.
