Saturday Plein Air - Slate Run Metro Park

We painted at Slate Run Metro Park at the historic working farm today. It was a dull, overcast day, with sprinkles.

 I chose this scene with the hammock. I began with too much detail, and kept simplifying. The layers of paint are pretty thin, so I think I will let it dry a bit and try to finish this with stronger paint while trying to be deliberate with each brushstroke.

I worked on this for an hour or so. I grew tired of messing with the slats of the fence. Too tedious for me...

Love how you made the hammock and the "shed" your Diva, rather than the tree. Awesome!
