Plein Air Iris
After work and several student related issues, I reached the B&B around 7 pm --- and found a similarly colored iris growing n Rebecca's yard. I grabbed my camp stool and started to paint my earlier sketched flowers.
After I knocked over my pan of water, painted in the sky and background, and then began on the flowers, I felt a bit of rain -- just a fine mist -- but the sky was darkening and threatened more showers. About the time I put down my paint palette, I received an urgent call from one of my instructors ... and had to take a bit of time to deal with that..... SIGH
So this 'plein air' event is about as patch-worked as it could get. I finished it in ink giving up on subtle shadings and fine painting!!! LOL
