Another Belleville Painting

Almost quit on this one but decided to try to salvage something.  And after quite a bit of fixing up on my initial field effort, here it is.  It was nice to have a number of people walking along the path so I could gauge their size and paint a person into it.    


Painting in Belleville 6/28/16

Trisha Duren with her pastel painting - great job on the water!
We had a great time painting in the park at Belleville.  It was quite overcast and chilly in the morning and the sun didn't come out until we were ready for lunch which several of us ate at a local pub in Belleville.  A very nice gentleman bought my Belleville Park pastel and I forgot to snap a photo of it but I found a nice little spot on the Sugar River on my way out of Paoli so I painted this pastel there looking back towards town.  I had stopped at Paoli on the way home to see Jan Norsetter's latest show at Zazen Gallery.  It was great and there were some beautiful local landscapes in various seasons.   Well worth a trip to Paoli!

8x6", "Sugar River at Belleville", Jan Norsetter

We had a cold morning in the park. I finally resorted to my down coat:-p
However, plein air painting is still great fun.

Mariners Cove Outing

Last Thursday we had a very nice morning painting along the Lake Mendota shoreline at Mariners Cove.  I did manage to find a sailboat, although it was raised out of the water.  That may not be obvious from the painting.  A few of us there agreed we might want to paint here another time later in the year.
