Looking up

In the middle of my paintout session last summer, this group of horseback riders stroll into my scene. That was one of the most magical moments for a plein air painter.

One Sunny Day - French Quarter

I did this painting at the end of December when I didn't have to worry about the work. There are so many details in this painting, like the flower pots, the chairs, windows, doors. It's quite different from the plein air painting I used to paint. Rendering those details needs a lot of patience. I also had a good practice of using the green colors. It's a good experience to try something new.
