Here is another plein air painting I completed last week in South Carolina. It was drizzling when we visited the pond so instead of setting up our easels we sketched and took notes. I did a 2x3 color study of the cattails and took it all back to the house to work on the painting. I love getting up close and personal in the landscape. As much as I am attracted to wide open spaces I still manage to find something to zero in on like wildflowers or some cattails by the edge of the pond.
I had a fantastic time teaching two workshops this weekend. Thank you to all of my students. It was great to see you again and to meet new pastel lovers as well. I will post pictures and a report tomorrow.
