Morning in Woodward Park
Morning in Woodward Park, 6 x 8 inches oil on canvas covered board
I recently took a three day Plein Air workshop with Curt Walters at Gicrease Museum and this is one of the paintings from the class. I have two others that I need to put some finishing touches on and one that will require going back to the sight to finish. It was a great class and I met some interesting people and feel like I learned a lot. One of the most exciting things was going to paint a Nocturne on Tuesday night at the Boston Avenue Methodist Church which is a beautiful art deco that dates back to 1907. I got it drawn in and made a start but I will either need to go back or make some reference photos. It was the first time I have tried a Plein Air at night and it was fun. Of course I was already a little worn from painting all day but I would love to try it again.
