Painting with Ohio Plein Air

This is the painting I chose to copy on a trip to the Cincinnati Art Museum last Saturday, January 21st, with the Ohio Plein Air group. They have "Paint Ins" each winter in the art museums in the state to avoid bad weather. I worked on:  Bougival, Alfred Sisley, 1876.

Here's the original with ID tag.
Me working on my little 8x10. It was tough getting the sense of this painting pared down to such a small size. Photo courtesy of Nancy Achberger.
After four hours work, this is where the canvas was when we packed up for home.
I worked on it again, from the photos I took at the museum, at MAPs group on Monday. This is the completed painting with about an additional three and a half hours.

  1. Wow! That looks like it was fun. I had no idea they would even let groups in to do such a thing. I've seen folks there with sketchbooks, never paints before. Very cool!
