Saturday Plein Air - Alum Creek Old Park Office Pond

Today dawned COLD and grey, in the forties. Expecting the weather to improve, I didn't dress warm enough! Even the swallows looked puffed up trying to keep warm. There was also a bald eagle circling the pond while we worked!

Even so, a good number of artists met at the old park office at Alum Creek. There is a nice little pond there with a path all the way around. With the grey overcast sky, there wasn't a subject matter that really appealed to me, but tried to settle in and paint.

I worked about an hour and a half and finally had to stop - too cold! It could use some work, but I will just leave this as is:

This one really speaks to me. You are so good with compositions …… and brush handling … and colors … and values, lol. Really nice Nancy. :-)

Thanks girls! I'm glad now I stopped early. It's growing on me. Looking at the photos online, I guess my colors are a pretty good match!
