For Columbus Day weekend, the family and I headed up to northern Wisconsin to my grandparent’s cabin. Perfect! Another opportunity for some plein air painting! (Or so I thought.) I did do one painting en plein air – in forty degree and very windy weather conditions! That painting isn’t photographed yet, so I will share it at a later date. However, this painting was done…um – un peu comme en plein air??? I was inside one cabin, on the top floor, looking out the window at the other cabin. This afforded me a great view of the cabin, the beautifully colored trees, and the lake. Had it been less windy, I would have ventured out to the second floor deck and done a truly plein air painting – as it was, I was pretty sure my whole setup would blow away if I went outside.
This painting is in progress but is entitled “View from the Eagle’s Nest.” It is 11″x14″, oil on board. Done with brushes, this time! Another perspective challenge – I see a few slightly wonky lines that I might work on fixing.
