Winters Garden

I decided to start of the year with a 31 day painting or drawing from life challenge hosted by Strada Easel. This was a great way to practice. I have become of fan of plein air painting and tried to get out as many times as the weather allowed. Living in central Wisconsin, we are in the middle of winter and some days are really just too cold to be outside painting. Sometimes I tried my best and painted very quickly! Always nice to add items from indoors for still life’s, or views from the window. A few times I worked on something twice but most of them are completed in a single session between 1-3 hours.


My Gallery of work for this 31 day challenge. A fun and memorable way to try new things, new locations and adapting to the weather.
