"Morning Run" plein air painting, Juanita Bay Park, Kirkland, Washington
I set up in the shade for my first painting at Jim Lamb's PA workshop in Kirkland. It was a beautiful day promising to be very hot and lots of folks were coming to the park. I tend to have a hard time painting figures into a plein air painting so I made a point to try and get them in this one. Jim gave me some good advice about adjusting values and a good tip that "rich ,saturated color(in the foreground and around the focal point) reads sunny day".
8x10 oil on panel
I tried to get one more quick 5x7 done at the end of the day. Sometimes these quick sketches can be the best ones, This one seems to be a bit washed out and flat. Overall a great day of painting with good friends, Emiliya, Janet, Dianna, and our excellent workshop host Jim Lamb!
