Plein air at Fire Island

Fire Island Plein air sketch
Fire Island Plein air sketch 2

Today, our group met at the Fire Island Light for plein air.  I did the first as a quick sketch and the second a little more work done in my 5x8 Strathmore Journal.  I will be doing more studies before I decide to paint in acrylic or oils.  It was a magnificent day and I do want to go back.  Happy Painting everyone.

These are lovely Joan, I think my favourite one is the first because it looks so spontaneous.

I just so love your watercolor work, every piece takes my breath away. These two are no exception.

Both of these came out great! It was good to have a peek in your journal in person. It was a lovely day there painting. I think we all had a good day!

Looks like a good plein air painting day! It's so fun painting on site, but for me, it's so hard to get comfortable...
Have a great creative weekend.
