|Hudson Gardens 8x10 oil|
This was my first Paint Out with Plein Air Artists Colorado (PAAC). It was a warm February day, about a week after a big snowstorm. At first, I painted some trees and a frozen river, but I kept glancing out of the corner of my eye at the barn glowing in the afternoon light. When I finished the tree painting, I moved closer to the barn, and painted this quickly with my palette knife. It turned out much better than the first painting.
