Plein Air Painting

This was my first attempt at plein air painting in acrylics.

That's me (above photo) with my little make shift plein air studio.  The water mirrored everything; the trees and bushes at its bank, the sky and clouds.  The play of light on the water was amazing.  Birds singing, leaves rustling in the breeze and the warmth of the sun.....oh it was glorious.

I love the relaxing look of these scenes. I always find it so easy to get lost in creating, and these folks look as if they don't even know their photo was being taken (you included!).
Your interpretation of the scene is lovely, and I especially like the additional focus you put on the water.

The painting is lovely. You are so lucky to be out in the outdoors. We are hunkering down indoors now in the NE and it isn't fun. Keep posting for those of us stuck indoors!
