Saturday Plein Air - Gantz Gardens

Since I work fulltime, I HATE to set an alarm for Saturday morning plein air. Today, I woke quite late at 8am! Yikes! Got ready to go fairly quickly, but it was still over 30 minutes drive to our location today. Thank goodness for my coffee!

So I worked small, quickly, and loosely on a pastel. Since I use reading glasses, it works for me to paint without them, that way I don't nit-pick over details and the end painting is very loose. Process shots below. 

I enjoyed seeing some butterflies while I worked in the herb garden at Gantz Gardens/Farm. I was painting the Autumn Clematis on the arbor. I'd put down a vibrant under painting before I left home onto the pastel paper.
