Sunrise, Plein Air

Thick paint, scooped on like frosting! I’m having a lot of fun with this. It’s challenging, and less predictable. When I touch a spot with a brush it might spread out, blend, lift up, or reveal some color I forgot was underneath. Lots of scrapping areas off and trying again. Below are a couple more cloud studies, a small one I did from a photo and an afternoon plein air landscape (nearly the same spot as the one above).

What an amazing way to start the day.

I went back to the same spot by the lake and painted the sunrise again this morning. The paint acts a lot differently when I apply thicker strokes. I like some of the results.

Plein Air: Sunrises, Sunsets

I had a great time at the Prairie Arts Festival last weekend. I connected with a lot of wonderful people, old and new friends. Thanks to all of you who stopped by my booth! The weather couldn’t have been nicer. My spot was on a beautiful lake, with swans nesting in the distance.

I was excited and honored to win the second place award (my red ribbon matched my sunburn – I brought sunblock on the second day).

I’m loving this online plein air class from Roos Schuring. These paintings are the sunrises and sunsets I’ve done so far. More updates coming soon!

A blanket of fog lifts over the rolling Nebraska hills as the sun rises – a very beautiful and strange effect of light.
