Saturday Plein Air - March 9

First day out for Plein Air 2013! We finally had a nice day today which was cold to start, but with the bright sun, made it a great day to paint. Three of us braved the 35 degree weather and met along the bike path and river near Worthington. We all decided to paint close to the cars and we all decided to paint the same beautiful Sycamore tree. I used the Golden Fine Pumice gel coated paper, which had almost too much texture this time.

 There were still some piles of snow along the path, but by the end of the day, it was up in the fifties and most were melted.

 I'd found a puffy warm coat at Target recently for only $10 on clearance and dedicated it for plein air use today! I actually got too warm near the end of my painting and switched out to a fleece vest.
