Sultry Summer Greetings!
This summer I’m teaching two Plein Air Classes. One at the Evanston Art Center and one at the Chicago Botanic Garden. While my students are busy working I try to squeeze in a painting or two.
I’ve been working on the painting below while at the Evanston Art Center, I’m going to call it Hydrangea and Black Capped Chickadee. Hydrangea’s are quite a challenge to paint due to their shape and color, or lack of in both areas. I’ve been having fun playing with the light on the window panes. I added the Chickadee in my studio. I’m working on two additional paintings at the Chicago Botanic Garden and hope to post these also.
