Thought I would post what I am working on.  This is 18x24  on Wallis, various soft pastels.  It is where I paint a few days a month.  My friend and I decided to paint outdoors and try to capture the little studio.  Whew, I'll never be a plein air painter.  I am SO slow.  It took most of the morning just to block in this blue monochrome you see and I just started laying in a bit of color.  Had to take this pic as reference as the morning shadows had disappeared.  How do people do it!! Will post when I am finally done with the painting.

Lynn,

Looks like a cozy place to paint.  Love the blues.

Lynn I am positively the last person that would know 'how they do it'!  ;D   I'm behind you...  :painting:

Looks like you are off to a great start regardless. I always have to take a photo first or I'd never finish anything! The only problem I have with finishing is I get sidetracked!  :whistle:
Cheers, Val

Excellent under painting!  I think most do thumbnails or sketches and then finish in the studio much like what you did.  It looks as if you caught everything that was important Lynn!  I finally decided to buy a roll of UArt 400 grit, 56" x 10 yards since the Wallis is still scarce, the last 2-3 items I did were on the UArt and I like the tooth of it.

Looking forward to seeing this one when you finish! O0

 :2funny: Thanks Mea, yes inspiration through every window here. Just a beautiful place. Hoping to let some of the blues peek through.
Yes Val, How do they do it.  One thing I learned, they probably don't start with an 18x24 sheet the first go round ;D


Thanks Jay for the encouragement!!
Dennis, It was those pictures of you in your hat and shorts outside with easel that encouraged me.  It just looked so fun and artist like.  Of course this is private property.  I wouldn't dare be somewhere for people to watch :)


Thanks Jennylynn.  A compliment from you is very meaningful!

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Crumbs, you are brave Lynnp.  I wouldn't know where to start because I have never tried drawing/painting outdoors.  Nevertheless, you are off to a wonderful start, keep going.  Patricia

This is the finished Pastel painting of the studio I started outside.  Took me much longer than I expected and then had a hard time knowing when I was done :crazy2:   C&C always welcome guys. The blue underpainting is at the start of this thread.
