After returning from painting Saturday, my husband mentioned that he noticed I have kept working at plein air painting even though it is still frustrating for me. He knows me well enough to know that I don't keep doing things that I'm not good at for very long.
So, it is nice to finally see a little progress. The first painting is from May 15th when Marie and I went down to the lake. The second is from Saturday, August 14th.
We have also started going with a larger group of painters headed by a local professor of art. The group includes some very good landscape painters and they are generous with their help, which is really nice.
