Bay Preserve in Osprey




11x14 inch oil on canvas panel

This plein air painting was done with the Light Chasers, the largest group of plein air painters in Florida and I am lucky enough to have them in Sarasota!  While I was on location, I sketched the scene and blocked in the shapes.  I finished it at my home studio.  I reworked those windows over and over. This was a learning experience and I feel so so about it. This was the second time I painted with them.  My first one last week was BAD. I didn't really know what to do with so much green.  I hope you'll watch me hopefully get better with more experience.  It sure is fun to be with such a wonderful group of artists!  And being outside enjoying the scenery around Sarasota is the icing on the cake.
