Today Shannon Runquist invited us to paint at her home, which backs up to to marshland where I set up. We also hired a model, and some painters worked with her on Shannon's veranda.
Raw umber underpainting, leaving edges soft
Blocked in the sky to help define edges
Blocked in marsh grasses
Smaller brushes to define details and edges of leaves.
I'm hoping to get another session on this painting when we return Thursday.
This was my lovely painting location, on a dock over the marsh
I am loving my plein air setup with the umbrella and a new double-jointed elbow clamp to attach it to the tripod. I am also really happy with my Open Box M easel. I'll be writing a full description of my setup soon!
