With a pancake breakfast in the woods and the opportunity to talk to over 50 Chicago area artists about their work-in-progress done on location, you can’t go wrong with this event if you’re interested in landscape painting.
This painting was done in multiple sittings, capturing a sun-drenched natural light. The flowers are directly rendered from life and show various stages of the life cycle of my daisies in the front garden.
This is a small scaled pastel painting done en plein air in Encinitas, California this summer.
You probably wouldn’t know it but those pesky dandelions are revered by herbalists and allium are a more decorative member of the onion family. This piece is very green and a bit muted for my liking, still I’m glad I caught those dandelion puffs before they blew away!
