Everglades Study (in oil this time)

Thursday afternoon I went out to the Everglades with my friend Claire Moore for some plein air painting. We spent about 3 hours next to the highway on an elevated gravel road that overlooks the everglades. The weather was gorgeous despite the sunburn I got. Painting out of doors has proved really satisfying. The painting resolved into something tangible and pleasing in a matter of hours. In the studio, I work on some paintings for months before I am pleased with the resolution.  I'm looking forward to going back next week to finalize this piece.
