Plein Air Cows Continued

"Grass Lunch" continued, 18"h x 24"w, oil, copyright Jill Banks 2013
Quick post -- but I did get back out to Kidwell Farm (in Herndon, VA) to paint today. Another uncooperative cow modeling day.  They must get rotated around the fields each day because today's pair was different than yesterday's -- but I wanted to capture the same light.

So, I didn't get very far.

I'm trying to get a little bit of plein air painting done every day this month. Right now it's two for two.

Packing Up From the Plein Air Landscape Class
And, to remain nameless but by popular demand ... here are two of my plein air painters from yesterday's landscape class heading home.  We are going to have to have a packing light lesson -- although I've been guilty of the same tendency to want to bring everything, just in case.
