Diane Mannion, Fishery, 10x8" oil, plein air
Painting in the Rain
A few hardy plein air painters showed up this morning at the Fishery in Placida despite the rain! Cars parked nose into the wind providing protection with open hatchbacks. My favorite way to paint, everything's handy, nothing to schlep around.
Fellow artists under hatchbacks.
Puddles inspire me... (doesn't take much!)
Toned panel and thumbnail sketch.
Finish again. Left it exactly how it was, did not fiddle or fuss. All the information, color notes, design, and feelings are here to paint a larger studio version.
There was a warm glow to the sky that does not show in the miserable photo.
Painting on a dreary rainy day was a treat... at least it was a change from the usual Floridian sunshine.
