Plein Air sketch - The Barn at French Farm

Two Sundays ago saw me sitting outside in the sunshine, painting at French Farm. French Farm is the most extraordinary creation of outdoor art gallery and working farm. Hosted by the Historical Society of Greenwich, the annual open day took place on September 15. Invited by the society to be one of their "Artists in the Garden", I was so happy to be there. Watercolor sketch of the barn, 24 x 18". sold


Painting Outside

A perfect day to paint outside. Sadly it was also the last but one day of Summer Camp but what better way to spend it than painting in the shade of the pines at the Garden Education Center. A quick demo of 2 pine trees, watercolor, a journal page. Periwinkle and Van Dyck brown make the most perfect silvery grey for tree trunks .


Hurrah for Summer

Summer seems to have finally arrived. Yeah, my favorite season. Friday, the longest day of the year and we saw our first hummingbird in the garden on Friday evening and our first fireflies. A very good beginning. Walking at the beach we have even seen a couple of brave swimmers. So to celebrate Summer, a journal page of paddlers.
