an Original Plein Air Oil Painting
by Claire Beadon Carnell

What a great day of plein air painting!  I went over to
my daughter's to paint her beautiful flower gardens with
my two granddaughters.  We had a beautiful, breezy day
to paint - so much fun!  See more pictures below.

What a great set-up - I was able to get out of the bright
sunlight by parking myself under their deck umbrella.

The girls painted right beside me.  I see some rather nice
looking flowers being painted...

I got a good block-in done on my second painting of the
day.  I love the variety of beautiful blue flowers my
daughter has in these beds...especially that lovely blue flower
directly to the right of my pochade box.

Don't really have to put up with this when I am out painting
in the wild...but I wouldn't give these wild things up
for anything in the world ♥

Great post Claire. Love those little wild things too. Your painting of the pansies has a nice composition. If I didn't know better, the one you say you have blocked in doesn't even look like a painting; but "real" life.
Nice job.

I like your floral still life, great colors and I can feel the warm sunlight. Grand kids are cutties.
