Plein-air efforts of the day.

The plein-air efforts of the day!
The garden shed
called to me today
so, I grabbed my paints,
set-up in the yard
enjoyed the warm sunshine,
the cool breezes,
the company of my cat,
and a good challenge.
Cheers, ~ Polly ~

Very nice! Your shadows and highlights are perfectly done, and I love how the trees behind the shed are softened and blended. This is a lovely scene and so well executed. I wish I could paint plein air like that, you make it seem easy, but I know it's not!

Thanks so much Katherine - your words are so very supportive and encouraging! As you know, plein-air painting can be a hit or a miss at times, but when I'm out there, I try to put all my efforts into just *painting*; getting the composition, seeing the colours and the light, and enjoying the moment.
