Saturday Plein Air - Alum Creek Galena Boat Ramp

We had to work quickly today to beat the storms. We wrapped up about 10:45. I had started an 8x10 of the view across the inlet, but my surface was giving me fits and not holding the paint. So I wiped it off. Sometimes that is a good way of loosening up for a better painting. 

I got out another canvas wrapped 6x6 panel which was already toned from a previous failed start. This time I tried to simplify and work quickly. I liked the view across from the boat ramp of the stand of interesting trees:

I worked fast and used the palette knife and was very happy how this turned out after 35-45 minutes - success!!
