|'Mrs. Parks Daisies' Plein Air Oil on Board 6x8 ©Karen Margulis Sold|
It occurred to me as I looked at my paintings that my very first plein air experience was 6 years ago at Mrs. Parks farm. I was taking a pastel workshop with Marsha Savage and I didn't have a clue about plein air. I had only been painting for a few months. But I fell in love with the whole experience! One of the paintings I did then was an 8x10 pastel of a clump of daisies. It was my first success and I was hooked. (see it below)
Now six years later I was a newbie again trying a new medium. I enjoyed revisiting the landscape and interpreting it with oils. One of the subjects I tired again was a clump of daisies I saw in the meadow at Mrs. Parks. It is interesting to me that I chose the same palette for the daisies 6 years later and in a different medium! Stay tuned tomorrow for a full report on my plein air trip!
