At G-36, plein air, daily painting by Fawn

"At G-36"
8 x 10 inches
Acrylic on hardboard
(ready to frame)


Haven't been out on location in quite a while. I know there is probably a neat name for this area of the levee, but the sign just says G-36. The lock in this area is still closed, the lake is still too low. The canals and creeks are filling up, but not the lake.

It was too windy today so I only did one painting, then I packed up. At one point the painting actually blew off of the easel and onto the palette! No harm done, it missed the blobs of paint, just scratched it a little and I touched it up.

This is a palette knife painting, lots of thick paint and lovely texture.


To purchase this one-of-a-kind original, go to MY GALLERY and click on this image (available tomorrow) or email me.

Thank you Bernie! I think water is my favorite plein air subject.
