Saturday Plein Air - Stratford Ecological Center

We always enjoy painting at the center. But today was a scorcher! We were wore out by noon.

I setup in the shade of the pear tree and painted the view of the blue wheelbarrow near the sunflowers. I was working on a tiny 5x7 Pastelbord which was a wipe-off from a past painting. It had some nice ghost colors when I started. That helped to get over the usual "dreaded white panel" when starting a painting.

"Blue Wheelbarrow", 5x7, pastel on Pastelbord
