STEMS Plein Air Paint 2011
The Arboretum is lovely, but I find a man made garden setting hard to make into an interesting painting. We walked around awhile and than settled near each other to paint our chosen subjects. Bill knocked out a huge textured palette knife painting of a tree. Carol set up almost on the walkway to get a good view, and painted the pond with the two waterfalls. ( I could hear people stopping to talk to her, but I couldn't hear what they were saying?) I went under a tree to get the view I wanted of a waterfall and to get out of the sun.
Here is a picture of my set -up and painting in progress.
