My friend Wendy, invited some of us up to her place for a late lunch, then plein air! It was a blistering hot day, so we sought out a place in the shade. We found this great view just outside of Gambier. We all were intrigued by the colorful changing corn field beyond the fence row.
And today was the first Ohio State Football (the "Buckeyes") game of the year, so luck had it we were painting under a buckeye tree so included this in our view!
This new easel is working out great! I painted on another Richeson gesso board, which are working really well for me. Process shots below:
