Newman Rd

I am blocking in to begin these paintings and I'm trying to get the color scheme of the Pissarro for the marsh grasses. So far, this is difficult for me. I hope to report soon that I am getting the concept.

Tuesday, April 10, 2007

Four of us, Gini Littlefield, Jean Rohran, Allie and myself, showed up to paint with Kevin Shea’s 8 week outdoor painting class. It was probably 40 degrees upon our arrival with a little wind. We were all bundled up. We painted the marsh on Newman Road in Newburyport and will go there again next week.

We got right to business, with Allie blocking in her painting before the rest of us were even set up. She is busy with family schedules and had to leave a little early. We three got a good start on ours and did leave at noon as it was pretty chilly.

I was very surprised that the cold didn’t bother me at all. The biggest surprise was the gloves. I thought I would not be able to paint with gloves on, but I actually liked it. I think I’ll get a second one started in my studio so next week I can work on both on location.
I took pictures of today’s efforts.

my new blog

April 9, 2007, Monday

I am very excited with this blog idea. I can't wait to hear back from viewers about their art experiences or their comments on mine. I'll be going outside tomorrow morning to paint plein air from 9 am to noon in the Newburyport area (Massachusetts). It's supposed to warm up to the 40's, but that is still pretty cold for me. I hope you will enjoy my blog. Please reply.
