Above is a watercolor sketch I painted last week at the Spring Green Preserve. It was beautiful but a bit buggy. Right is a pastel painting of a dead tree on the main trail with the bluff in the background. I painted that in the studio from the watercolor sketch below. I think the plein air sketches are more successful. I also enjoyed a visit to the Jura Silverman Gallery in Spring Green. On July 19 they will have a show featuring Wisconsin artists like Jonathan Wilde & David Bielot. Mr. Bielot paints large watercolors en plein air with gorgeous washes in them. Pretty amazing paintings.
