Diane Mannion, Painting Party, 6x6" oil
Invited an artist friend over for a painting party. After my mean grilled cheese sandwiches, we set up our plein air equipment outside in the shade. Delightful afternoon of silly chatting, canaries singing, and playful brushwork... it doesn't always have to be so serious. Was able to finish this, except for the horse head, scraped and finished later. For some reason, horses and bicycles are the most difficult for me to draw. But I like the way I captured the play of sunlight and the happy feeling of the afternoon.
