Plein Air Debut
Everyone who has been a part of Karin Jurick's Different Strokes from Different Folks challenge knows Edward Burton.
I'm lucky that I live a couple of town/cities away from Edward. He was kind enough to let me know his plein air group was going to painting in my town.
Forrest Farm is a City Park and where there is a Farmer's Market on Saturdays. While we were there, the park employees were giving tours to a couple groups of school children.
My first attempt was looking at a clump of trees near a creek bed and the second was a tractor at the rear of one barn. They also train sheep dogs on this park land and it's so cool to see these dogs do their job out there.
The group plans to come out again next week and I'll try to join them again.
Both paintings are oil on 8x10 RayMar board.
