S. Platte Park 2 - 9x12 oil studio
The last painting from the plain air with PAAC left me a little disappointed so I decided to paint it again using the old painting as reference.  This looks more like a cold day. 

Here is the side by side comparison.

S. Platte Park 9x12 oil plein iar
Painting with the PAAC today on a blustery day. Kinda cold, overcast and definitely windy. Not the ideal conditions but a great way to get ready for winter painting. A quick sketch that needs a lot of attention. lol

Cari Pastel on strathmore charcoal paper painted at Terry Ludwig Studios - always working with challenges. It you change or alter one little thing everything else ends up needing changed. Ah, there are good days and then there are not, lol.

Pastel painting with Pastel Society of CO

Rock Creek Farm 1 11x14 pastel plein air - on prepared Wallas
Rock Creek Farm 1 9x12 pastel - on prepared Uart

What a beautiful day to paint. This little gem of a spot is just a little bit south of Boulder CO. Couldn't ask for a nicer day and it is the middle of Nov. Temperature was great with a little bit of a breeze and the sun shining enough to keep out backs warm.  I could do this every day.

Amy - pastel - what fun and a challenge to paint Amy. She is 4 months pregnant and had great energy in her quick poses. This long pose was also a challenge because it is really hard to get into the same position after every break.

Painting with the PAAC Nice afternoon to paint. I didn't know this place was here. I will have to go back, although it is a little bit of a drive.

Bear Creek Backlight 5x7 oil
It seems funny that I am going backwards. I have been working to paint larger and here I am painting this at 5x7 from an old 16x20 that I did a few years ago. A quick warm up painting.
