I went out again with the Plein Air Austin group again a couple of weekends ago.  We had a wonderful time.  Although it was very muggy even at 8am.  
This was on Lost Creek.  I would have never known this was here if it hadn't been for this group.

I'm still trying to get the hang of it.  I think I need to take a workshop on plein air painting.  Practice, practice, practice.

It is absolutely beautiful here.  I'm sure there are some pretty parts of Houston (where I live) but you really have to search them out.  In Austin (and surrounding areas), any where you look is scenic.  ( I may have already mentioned this but its worth mentioning again.)

This is a lady in the group doing water color.  I'm still trying to get all the names down.  I think it was Jane. Nice work.

I think it will be a couple more weeks before I can go out with them again.  
So until then,

God Bless

  1. Look like you are doing very well to me. As you say practice,practice and you will get there. Sometimes a workshop will only serve to stifle the artist drive within you because a particular viewpoint is expressed.

    I have a friend who is part of the group and I am considering going along to the next one. As I haven't painted for a considerable length of time, I am somewhat nervous. Also I am not good with the heat. Hopefully by then the 100f+ heat will be history
