First sunny day in a week.
Still early March, cold, but I have to get out and paint a little bit.
|Looking for a spot off the road, morning light.|
Last time I painted plein-air was here in Umbria last spring, so I am itching to get out and paint .
|About to get started.|
|A very pretty, poetic setting.|
These panels I purchased in Rome are new for me, but they are standard european gesso on birch panels. Really beautiful, and beautiful to work on.
I started with these small ones, but I think I'll buy some larger ones either in Florence, or perhaps Cortona has them.
|My set up in the field.|
|It's a simple thing, really, but forty years of painting experience|
hopefully, will make it special.
Late in the afternoon, same day, another long view.
A long view of the lake next to a vineyard near a small village, Vaiano.
|Dropped pencils and pens caught Janelle's eye.|
|Late afternoon long shadows made for a fun shot.|
The short videos speak for themselves.
|A finished "Painted Poem".|
