Spring Showers Plein Air Painting


Spring Showers Plein Air Painting, painting by Jan Blencowe


About This Painting: It was such a grogeous morning yesterday I couldn't wait to get outside and paint. Unfortunately, by the time I got out it was very overcast and by the end of this painting it was raining! So much for all that sunshine and blue sky!! So here we have a plein air painting that captures the subtle variations of grays, muted colors and absolutely flat light, in other words DULL, LOL. It's not a particularly inspiring scene but still, it is a record of the afternoon and how things looked during those particualr atmospheric conditions.

Media: oil on panel

Size: 12 in X 9 in (30.5 cm X 22.9 cm)

Style: plein air impressionism

Friday 5:30-7:30, June 5th is the opening of Landscapes by the Hudson Valley Daily Painters. The show runs through July 15th get all the details here

If you are anywhere near Rhinebeck, NY I would LOVE to meet you at the opening!
