"Weeping Willow and Water" plein air, oil landscape painting by Robin Weiss

"Weeping Willow and Water" 8x10 oil on panel
 I enjoyed my first outing with the Plein Air Washington Artists last week.....What a fun and welcoming group of fellow painters!....We all went to Bainbridge Island's, Bloedell Reservation. The history of this amazing property is very interesting. It is definately a great place to paint!! 

The Bloedell "Meadow"
The first day was raining a light drizzle but it added to an interesting atmosphere that I tried to convey in the paintings.  I did three paintings the first day which will be posted soon.

Everyone was using umbrellas ....except me! I had to keep tilting the water out of my paint box...

I did find a pretty dry spot under a huge fir tree to get this painting....I was enjoying it so much I didn't want the day to end!

wonderful painting and story, Robin. I think I might take a shot at the pond, too; tho the barn with the couple under umbrellas is very sweet. Your inspiration had sure helped me get to doing more paintings! thanks!
