Wednesday of Plein Air Week II

The class arrayed on the hill above the Clark

Today we walked calmly up the hill behind The Clark (two of us wisely bringing our stuff with us because we knew we weren’t going up and down and back up again!) and we painted as the clouds came and went and light played on the hills. The only logistical problem of this hill is that it’s a cow pasture and as such has a lot of cow patties so you have be a little careful walking but more importantly you can’t just plop your bag and stuff down any old place. Just sayin’. Sometimes it has cows in it too.

I did not overlook any cow pies today. I found a place between some trees to stash my backpack. I did manage to pick up some nice quin gold deep on my sweater sleeve which I was able to get mostly out using a wet rag that was handy. One of the times that using a water-soluble paint is an advantage.

I thought I’d start out today doing a sketchbook painting before doing a flat paper thing. Too fussy. So I tried to work simpler with each piece and that was pretty successful.
