The sun moves, shadows change; there is only a short period of time that an artist has to capture the shifts of light and color when painting outdoors - but it is this very desire to distill the energy and freshness of nature that drives the plein air painter. Susquehanna Valley Plein Air Painters was formed to bring together artists who share this passion.
LAYERS OF BLUE an original pastel painting by Clare Klaum
Day two of painting. The location was Fort Hill, Eastham, Cape Cod, MA.
The view from the top of the hill was stunning! It reminded me of the sand paintings that were popular years ago. You would pour different colored sand into a glass container and create patterns and layers of color to create a scene.
