What I Did Last Summer Part 2
Mariemont Plein Air Outing
This weekend I went to my first Cincinnati Paint Out.
The setting was a historic German Town sponsored by the Woman’s Art Club. This group was founded in 1892, originally because the Cincinnati Art Club excluded Woman. Today neither club excludes genders.
I chose to paint at the Mariemont Concourse, which overlooks the Ohio River Valley. I started early in the day, and finished in 3 hours, fortunately before the heat of the afternoon.
There were about 60 artists attending, who were friendly and welcoming.
Here I am with my painting that SOLD.

I felt like doing another sky, my favorite subject. They are magical to me.

Thunderhead Over Rolling Plains
It’s a good day to remember summer days. Tomorrow we will have a high of -7. I think will paint a snow scene next though. I won’t be painting it outside!

Valley of Enemy Creek (WIP02)
I’ve made progress on the big canvas. 30″x48″ The middle and foreground trees are next.
On the creek there are adjustments to make it more like actual place, but overall I think it’s working.

This week I’ve been focused on the big painting. I will probably still be adding color and lighting adjustments to some of these areas.

When I sketch my paintings, I use watercolor pencil and push my lines around with water and a brush. I usually paint the background yellow, tan, rust, or even red. I use gesso with a little fluid acrylic, in this case Indian Yellow. I never leave it white!
