En Plein Air

En plein air is French for "in the open air." Our Upper Rogue Artists' Association has been painting outdoors every month rather than meeting indoors. As long as the weather holds, we'll be outside. The last two sessions were held on Fridays just before we left on trips. I never seem to have everything together enough for me to go and paint all day long. Therefore, I take photos and come back and paint here. I have several to choose from this month as we were on the river.
Maybe I'll start one today. I want to play with my pastels. Maybe the greens won't be so hard with chalk. I'll have to see how it goes.

Well, I had five more photos but they are all turned sideways. So just imagine many lovely options along the river.
