Plein Air Painting

6" x 8"

Painted with Sally Christiansen's morning workshop group. Sally begins with a fast, fifteen minute pastel painting. We stand in awe as it forms right before our eyes. A lot can be learned from watching another artist work. Even though most of the artists in the group are extremely accomplished, there's always something new to learn. How boring would it be if we thought we knew it all. I'm learning to loosen up and paint faster. Painted Sally as she walked by in her straw hat. A figure can give a painting life and scale, and I think Sally pulls this one together. Service Beach, Venice, FL.
