Really Plein Air

Acrylic on hardboard, 6x 6 ins

This time I really sat outside–on my deck, looking out at my backyard, early on Saturday morning. I really wanted to paint the sunlight coming through the trees and tried to make this a ‘response painting’ rather than an accurate representation. It became more accurate than I intended, but I like the effect. At least I put something down on the board before the sun moved above the trees!

  1. Nice work, Mary! This is exactly what the sun is doing in my backyard at this time of year! So inspiring! I tried to take a photo, but, it doesn’t do it justice….guess I will have to take my paints and have a go at it LIVE, like you! 🙂
