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.
Just thought I would share the painting I did at the farm Cecelia and I visited. I chose to walk down to the pond, looking back at the barn. I edited out the fence and made a little more of the wildflowers in the field. I don't know if I will do anything with this painting, but it gives you a sense of the landscape there - in case our group decides to paint there in the future.
