The model didn’t show up this morning so some of the other artists were generous enough to take turns posing. 15 minute poses.
And after lunch I did a quick plein air from the roof of our house. It was very windy so I spent a lot of time holding on to my easel.
Very Windy Afternoon, plein air, acrylic, 12×16”
I worked bigger today and tried drawing before I started painting to try to avoid dealing with that aspect while I was painting.
Another morning in the playground. Acrylic, 16×20”
A very nice day here today.
November First, plein air, watercolor, 9×12”
A nor’easter came through here yesterday and the waves this morning were amazing! It was windy and I had to paint fast and with my easel low on the ground. Another 8×16”. I like this format a lot, but wish the paper was higher quality.
This is at least the third painting on this panel. I’m convinced now that it is cursed. The moment I started this painting I got a call from the school nurse saying my child was sick. I continued painting for a little while before packing up and heading to the school. Luckily, despite ruining my painting opportunity, it was a false alarm. With this weekend’s impending nor’easter this may have been my only chance to paint some fall color this year.
Back in Sachuest NWR this morning.
Sachuest, plein air, watercolor, 8×16”
Figure group today. I wanted to stick to charcoal today, but I did do one watercolor. For the last pose I switched sides of the room and realized that the other side had really nice light. If I had been on that side of the room I would’ve done watercolors instead of charcoal.
