Float On

9 x 12

I was planning to practice plein air painting a couple of weekends ago and Saturday was just the most gorgeous day.  First thing in the morning I saw a gorgeous light streaming through the trees in front of the house and then another beautiful scene of reflections on the water.  Well, I sat down and enjoyed my cafe au lait and read the newspaper - great morning.  I missed the painting opportunities though!  So, I thought, no problem, I'll catch them tomorrow morning . . . and it rained.  Obviously I've a lot to learn about plein air painting.  So, I painted the above from photo references painting fast and trying to approximate at least the time constraints of plein air.
