New Plein Air Paintings

Anna Maria and Backyard View
I've been wanting to paint outdoors, but it's Fl. in the summer and it's hot! I finally went to the beach and painted the clouds and water. It was exciting to paint in public instead of nerve wracking like it sometimes can be. I used water soluble oils and my homemade cigar pochade box. I realized have to rig up something to clip boards onto so I can paint a little bigger. The backyard view is out my studio window and at the end of a day of working on 2 larger paintings, I felt the need to paint fast and loose. The sun was setting and really lighting up the spanish moss.

This was an engaging challenge to paint because of all the highlights, funny shapes and the gold plate.
I'm still listening to Infidel.
