Plein Air - Pastel

"Creek Bend - August", pastel, 9x12

"Fields of Meadow-rue", pastel, 9x12

Last Thursday I met up with some local artists to paint at one of my favorite places, Townsend Park in Cannonsburg. These are two of my paintings from that outing using my new Dakota Field Easel and Pastel travel box. I really like the travel box, but am not so keen on the Field Easel. I think it is hard to set up and not sturdy enough. I will probably go back to the trusty old French easel for pastel plein air.
Next weekend is the "Joy of Pastel Plein Air" Workshop at the Pickle Street Studio in Hopkins, MI.
We have room for 3 more students - join us if you can! See my website on the Events page for more details.
