Fox Island Adventure

Our painting group, Muses Mix Media, painted en plein aire today at Fox Island at Indian Lake State Park.  It was a lovely day and we had a wonderful time.  It was windy, so we took refuge behind the restroom building, out of the wind.  I was situated under the "women" sign - it was so apropos since we were a group of women painting:)  What fun!  My painting started with an underpainting of burnt sienna which I then painted over with thicker paints.  No knife painting this day!

Oh Barbara!! Look at these beautiful colors and this gorgeous scene! No surprises here; everything you do is gorgeous!

This entire painting is so well-done, but my fav part are those puddle reflections in front of the trees. How cool!

We've had lots of wind this week here, also, so I am glad you found a windbreak. Nice work! Will the paintings the others did be posted on your collective blog? I'll have to check.

But you didn't say what media you were painting in...acyrlic? Oil? I am going to be painting en plein air at a garden show next Saturday. Can't wait.
