I took plein air painting this semester. It was a challenging class. This is one of my better paintings. It was not as easy as I thought it would be but my knowledge of painting color and sketching environments did help. It was maddening at times, but I'm glad I feel I learned a lot.
I'm sorry to say that I have a lot more drawings and fun things I've been working on but I don't have a proper scanner at the moment. At least I can show off some fun practice I had with my oil paint. I had plenty of colors left over from plein air painting today and thought that I would have some more fun and use them to paint this apple. The apple has been sitting in my room for a week or two because it's colors are so beautiful I knew I would have to paint it eventually. Thought this might make a good gift for the parents of a young child and thus I added "A is for Apple". It might also make a good gift to a grade school teacher.
