This was painted for the Third Annual Belle Fourche, SD Plein Aire Event Sep 21-23, 2018. The trestle is suspended over Redwater River at Elkhorn and Hwy 212. Access to paint is at the Lions Club Park...lovely place, lovely day. We attend the judging and wet sale today at Noon. We missed the Meet & Greet on Friday night and the Reception Saturday night, not wanting to travel home after dark...Yes, I'm that old!
7" x 11" Watercolor on Arches 140 lb paper. I painted this during a Betty Carr Workshop using her reference photos. She encourages a variety in our greens and no wimpy contrast! I hope to continue bravery with my own reference materials and while painting scenery with friends.
Sunflowers (Obviously) This painting was done in a watercolor painting workshop I attended for five days, given by Betty Carr. She is a hoot and I learned to stretch myself. It is 7"x11" which when matted would fit nicely in a 11 x 14 frame.
