Painting in the Rain

Yesterday, our group met at Slate Run Metro Park, at the Buzzard Roost picnic area. A few of us setup under the shelter house with a view of the pond. It was a moist damp day with the threat of rain. I actually enjoyed painting in the rain in the picnic shelter. Reminded me of camping! Several of the group who braved the weather down by the pond, soon came to join us when the rains started. They got pretty wet, but all were painting in oils.

I used a canvas wrapped board. I've decided they aren't my choice. I prefer a smoother surface.

Good for you getting out and painting. Even under shelter, its a good thing. I like the composition you chose. Your painting looks like a rainy type day.
