Plein Air Painting

Beach Bridge, 6x6" oil
Painted with the Lemon Bay Plein Air Painters this morning in Bay Heights Park.  Changed rapidly from sun to clouds, back and forth making painting difficult because of changing values.  I was attracted by the viridian green bridge, the yellow-green channel marker, and the pinkish palm branch hanging over it.  But the bridge was too far away to make the impression I wanted.  Have to try this one again using binoculars or taking the kayak out for a spin with my tiny, thumb pochade box.  Every painting is practice for the next one.   At least I got my brush pushing workout for the day.
