Plein Air at Grayton Beach State Park

August 14, 2013 in Landscape, Plein Air by joanvienot

The last time I painted at Grayton Beach State Park, it was pouring down rain, so today’s partly cloudy skies were a treat.  A lot of painters showed up.  I didn’t work as hard at accuracy, instead trying to capture the general impression of the funny-looking clumps of greenery on top of the dunes, and exaggerating the texture of the sea oats.  These are the two 8 x 10’s I painted, oil paint on canvas panel.  A number of visitors to the park passed by, all pleasantly wishing me a good morning, a few stopping to see what I was doing.
