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.
Great Weekend Painting Graystones Preserve with SVPAP, by Deb Kreiger
The Graystones Preserve is indeed a hidden gem in the Pocono mountains since 1934. Thanks to our member Elizabeth Gallucci for making the arrangements and giving us great tours along with her knowledge and history of the preserve. We all had fun and picked up a few tips form everyone. What a beautiful place and we hit the perfect weekend. I painted three paintings. All are acrylic on canvas with the first one having a touch of oils. The first painting was our view from our cabin! The second is of Mud Run, which one part of the creek with a lot of rocks.! The last is a very peaceful still pond. The colors were fabulous.
