Plein Air MAPs

Last Friday was the first time the MAPs group got out to paint "en plein air." Only three of us showed up but it was a glorious, sunburn producing, morning. Just on the front side of a weather High, the sky was so blue it didn't look natural. The humidity was rising and puffy cumulus clouds started filling the sky as the day progressed.

I chose the time of day when I started painting for the look of the sky in this one. I thought the clouds would complicate the background too much. These are some mature oak trees that stand along the front of the park property. They've already lost some of them, hope they can keep these for awhile.

Painted image and on easel.
