1585 Perfect Day at Jetty Park Plein Air Alla Prima

I had a great time painting with my friends today, it was beautiful out at the Jetty park.  The fisherman was there, he left shortly after I started painting.  I hope I didn't make him nervous!

 He was the last thing to be painted so I had to do him from memory.  I am thinking he wasn't catching much anyhow there was a zillion little fish swimming next to the rocks, huge schools of them.  So whatever he had for bait probably wasn't as nice eating as them.  Every now and then some big fish would chase the little ones and there would be big splashes and commotion.  They were all gone by 12:30, about when I left too.

The painting is 8 x 10 inches, oil on masonite.

1578 Under the Oaks at the Savannas, Plein Air Alla Prima

I painted this today out at the Savanna's Recreational area by Midway road.  Nice day to be in the shade, its cooling down a little but its still pretty warm.

Very pretty out, I saw a lot of places there I would like to paint but no shade to get under.  There are some nice ponds with wild white water lilies and the Florida holly is everywhere.  Pretty pink, white and yellow wild flowers in the grass.  They haven't mowed around there lately and the flowers love it.  

 The painting is oil on masonite, 12 x 16 inches.

1577 SOLD Poinciana Grove

SOLD  I did this one awhile back but I don't think I posted it.  Going to try and get back in the habit of posting my paintings!  I have been painting a fair bit but just haven't been putting them online.  Then I had a month long flu type thing, that is finally better!  But it kicked my motivation out the window.
