Topics: Plein Air Painting
My second attempt at plein air painting in South Pasadena had a very tough start. I couldn't get out and motivated this morning. So it didn't surprise me that after driving to the scene I realized I had forgotten my camera, couldn't decide what to paint and had to run to the bathroom. Augh!!! Sometimes everything seems to be working against you.
Finally set up, I actually began painting after 10:30. Not an auspicious start. Once I started painting though, everything that went wrong that morning evaporated into the air. I had so much fun painting the arches, I was in the shade which was a good thing because it was over 100 today, and shadows from the trees danced their pattern on the bridge.
The reflected light on the under side of the arches was a warm glow. Starting so late, I didn't have time to finish the trees and will refine them tomorrow. This is the fourth bridge I have painted and I find myself always on the lookout for the next one I can capture in oils.

Another great one... even without the auspicious start!!
You really captured the depth of the bridge and some beautiful color changes.
I think I'm just going to have to stand behind you for a very long time to see if something will sink in.
GREAT JOB... I look forward to going out painting together tomorrow!
