Plein-air Efforts of the Day ...

Yesterday's plein-air efforts that is!

Yesterday was a touch warmer
for a little plein-air venturing!!
A few miles from the studio
there is a lovely brook called
Hunts Brook.
In the warmer months
 I often ride my bike through
the back roads and one road I'm
particularly fond is, Unger Road.
Unger Road slices through
Hunts Brook
making it widen
and creating a marshy type area,
ideal for Painted Turtles,
though not the road.
(Over the years of riding my bike,
a few turtle rescues have been made.)
The view that called out.

is in the background of the photo,
you can just make out the greenhouse roof.

And here is the easel
with my work in progress attempts.
You can't quite tell from the photo,
but it was slightly sunny 
and the Sun was gracious enough
to peak out from behind
its silver curtain of clouds
from time to time.
Please stay tuned for more
what's new from the studio!
Cheers, ~ Polly ~
