I've been admiring those folks over in the Plein Air forum for some time now. So I decided to appraoch this photo in the same manner as they paint outside: simplify shapes, limited pallette, and of course, limited time. Oil on canvas board, 8"x10", 2 hours.

Beautiful job on this one! It does look like a plein air- has that "I'm right here" quality. I like the way the sunlight touches the plants.
I did this image too, and will post it when I get either the scanner or camera working! :p

Your usual standard Deano - excellent in all respects!
Love that light filtering through and catching the bushes - top class! :D

Hi Deano! I also did "plain aire" from the same picture, only in oil pastels :D Have not scanned yet...
I see, log was simplified :) You achieved strong lighting on the left nicely! :clap:

You know, I figure, those plants on the right are probably not trees. It occured to me after I finished.

Thanks, Stonewhiteclown. Yep, I simplified the log plumb outta there ;) . I saw those plants on the right as tall tree-like bushes. I'm looking forward to seeing your rendition.

This is what I tried to do - but so much better. I think it can be good in watercolor, but certainly is harder for me.

From what I hear, this seems to be a pretty popular pick this week. Haven't had a chance to see them yet. I'm sure that your rendition is fine, Connie, judging from your past entries.

Deano, this makes me feel like you hiked hours to get there, and have painted peacefully and productively in the cool shade, while admiring the lowering sun in the clearing. I expect the deer will be here to drink shortly. Absolutely beautiful ! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Thanks, Sue, for the kind words. I saw your OP of this and the colors in it truly rock. It glows with light.

Deano....did you have a nice cool drink from that lovely little creek, while you were painting in that beautiful golden sunshine??

I can just imagine what it would be like to paint there. You certainly managed to capture the feeling.....This is so beautiful and calm and serene....I love your work!! :clap: :clap: :clap:

One of my art groups meets every Thursday thoughout the summer (weather permitting of course, and so far it hasn't) to go painting at a different location....I hope I find a place that nice when I go next week. I have this photo saved in case it rains. ;) :D

Absolutely Beautiful! I know what you mean about these plein aire groups and WC! is planning one in Michigan, the last weekend in June, could you join us? Larry Siellers will be there! I'm planning some plien aire painting also and would like to do as good a job as you--that is a very good painting. :clap:

Hi, Irish. Thanks for your very kind words. I would really LOVE to join you folks, but unfortunately I'll be tied down to Ohio at that time. Isn't Siellers Great? I really like your aspen trees this week. :D

When you bring back some plein air paintings, would you please post them? I would love to see them. I already know that they'll be great. :clap:
