Well, the first outside painting foray has been completed. None of the three of us had a bad first waffle, but my two friends out-painted me today. My only excuse is that my canvas was 16x20", and they were both painting on the heads of pins. Still, they both grasped the experience more handily than I.
It managed to get up to 84 degrees Farenheit (29C) this afternoon, and was gloriously sunny, but the landscape is still largely dormant. We'll be back next week, when we'll no doubt see lots of changes. In a shaded pond area, the spring peepers were tuning up, and TMB was much interested in two turtles sunning themselves on a log. All in all, a great day.
Michael Ruple, another painter friend, was painting outdoors in New Jersey this afternoon. Michael reports that things didn't go so well. Still, there's next time! Here's a New Jersey photo since Michael hasn't sent one.
I think it's great that we're all in contact and that, although we're all painting at locations very far apart, the fraternity of painters keeps in touch. Let us know if you were out today.
