Plein-air efforts of the morning. (The Green Challenge)

The plein-air efforts of the morning.

'Honey Locust' 16" x 36". Oil on Canvas. 2012.


Today's plein-air efforts
were challenging for a few reasons.

1. I'm still rusty at plein-air painting.

2. Green - is not my strong point.

3. Trees and woods are also not
a strong point of mine.


4. I painted on canvas,
not my favourite surface
to paint on - anymore.

None-the-less with all those
challenges stacked against me
it gave me all the more reason to try it! 

There are a few more canvases
kicking around the studio
which I intend to use
as I attempt (again) to become less rusty
at a favourite past time!

Stay tuned for more!!

Cheers, ~ Polly ~
