Plein Air (outdoor) Painting

Ole man Winter gave the Alabama Plein Air Painters a break over the weekend. Carol and Jack Oneal of Priceville hosted us at Springwood, their antebellum home and farm. They had everything you could want to paint, and what did we choose? Their laundry hanging out in the morning.!

Here are the results for the 2 days we spent there: 9x12, plein air, oil

The pond in the cow pasture. It was an "almost sunny" winter day. Hardly enough winter light to make strong shadows, but it brings out the lovely winter subtle colors. the backdrop of the old cedar trees sets everything off. 9x12, oil , plein air

You saw this one on yesterday's blog. you can tell I like trees. Winter gives us time to appreciate their structural beauty. 12x9, plein air, oil

The O Neals have at least 2 log structures, and several red barns. This is the unfinished view from close to the house towards the old horse barn. Perhaps this log stucture on the right was a chicken coop???
What a wonderful time we had. This was a special treat, because I can find inspiration anywhere, but the O Neals' farm just made it so easy.
