Painting at Lake Joy

Our EAFA group was out painting at Lake Joy, about 30 miles east of Seattle. I did an 8x10 distance view of the lake and mountains, but also took a few photos of the lake and since I love water lilies, I did a larger, 16x20, at home the next day. Here are the two images. The top image is a little light, the photographer's (me) fault. LOL.

Summer Paintings in Edmonds

Have been outdoors painting in the Seattle sunshine, although seems our painting days on Wednesdays do end up with clouds in the morning. Here are some new views. 

The top three are views from Edmonds Bracken's Landing, or the Ferry terminal area. I varied the underpainting in top two yet did the same view, with much different color choices. Below that is the bath building at the beach. These are all 8x10.

 The bottom work is a 6x8 of another view at Edmonds, a beach cove, showing the cloudy sky.

The 4rd work, also 8x10, is at the Maltby Flower World park.

Summer Plain Air Painting

Here are two outdoor works, one from Eugene, Oregon, of the river running through town, and the other from Bob's Corn and Pumpkin Farm in Snohomish. I finished both in the studio however, but the results were worth it. Both are 8x10.
