Hi, all! Fall is here. The autumnal equinox is Sunday. There air here in the Chicago area is finally feeling refreshingly crisp. I am looking forward to the beginning of a plein air painting journey through the changing seasons! With two kids in school at the same time for 2 hrs a week, twice weekly, I am planning to get out and PAINT! I have already done two plein air painting sessions this month, but haven’t gotten around to photographing my paintings to share.
Here are some photos of one of my plein air setups – just at the edge of my neighborhood, overlooking Hadley Valley Preserve. I have admired the changing seasons in this landscape for years…it will be very exciting to get to paint them finally! I found a nice little spot and plan to “paint the view” in deep fall and winter as well.
My other plein air session was in a forest on an overcast day, and its amazing how dark it can be! I had my point-n-shoot, and all the photos came out jiggly, so I don’t have any evidence of that setup. Next time, perhaps.
