Sunset Clouds Plein Air Painting

Sunset Clouds Plein Air Painting, painting by Jan Blencowe

copyright 2009 Jan Blencowe, Connecticut, USA

About This Painting:
Another in the new Postcard Paintings of Connecticut series

After yesterday's adventure outrunning a thunderstorm, and dinner where it was only raining infront of the restaurant and not on the side LOL I went to Founders park in Old Saybrook and was treated to a beautiful view of the CT River, a rainbow, a 3/4 moon and some breathtaking clouds at sunset.

This painitng was hard won though, because while I was painting there were 2 sun showers and despite my umbrella lots of rain got on my painting practically melting the acrylic paints. I ended up wiping down the whole thing and waiting for the shower to pass and beginning again. Which in the end turned out to be for the best because by then the light and clouds were spectacular. Perserverence pays off for the plein air painter!
