I returned to Kelley Point Park last week for some Plein Air painting but could not get near the vantage point I drew from before because the River is running so high. In fact, there was hardly any beach area at all.
The painting above was done mostly plein air at the park. Even though it’s almost July, we’ve had very few sunny days here and this was no exception. This park is a bit depressing anyway and the lack of sun had me feeling pretty low, as I painted this.
The second and third paintings were done from studies I’ve been working from, some done on site a couple of years ago.
I still feel like I’m struggling to decide on a direction style-wise, torn between pushing the work farther toward or away from my observations.
