First Plein Air Painting

My first Plein Air. January 1st with a dry, cold and windy day. 38 degrees!!! I finished that piece as fast as I could!! It was cold and the paint was drying quickly. I would spray the paint on the pallette then paint the painting. I finished and went to other artists and showed the finished painting. They had just got started!! Acrylic can be a challenge but what a joy!!
9" x 12" Acrylic


A number of plein air artists got together at the winery one year. We painted at several areas. Had a great time. This piece needs some help. Going to work on the building and the artist too but I wanted to share this plein air piece.
I think I could put more branches over that tree. May work on that piece.
