This is a quick study I did of the woods/stream nearby. Keeping the shapes abstract and focusing on color variation, especially with the greens. Plein air forces you to work quickly due to the changing light, but is excellent for developing your observation skills.
Note: There is still room in my June 6 plein air workshop at NJ Visual Arts Center in Summit. Registration fee is $90, class runs from 3-7 p.m. Call the center at 908-273-9121 to register.
