Daily Painting 1375 In for the Day Blue sailboat plein air alla prima

I did this today by the marina in Fort Pierce, changed the background to a more natural area instead of the parking lot and cars and other boats, buildings, etc. It was a beautiful day, had lots of nice company, other artists and nice people who liked my painting. (even when it was a lot of blobs) Saw a family of manatees and a few pods of dolphins. The painting is 5 x 7 inches, oil on masonite, $100.

Daily Painting 1374 Manatee Center, Fort Pierce, Plein Air Alla Prima

I painted this today looking towards the Manatee Center here in Ft. Pierce, it was perfect out and I had lots of good company. Even saw three manatees!
Had a some people stand right in front of what I was trying to paint, I wonder how other artists deal with that, I thought what I should have said was, "If you all don't move I will paint you into the picture!"
Its 8 x 10, oil on masonite, $200.

Daily Painting 1368 Pepper Park Lane Plein Air Alla Prima

I did this at Pepper Park here in Fort Pierce. I took some artistic liberties, made the asphalt into a dirt road. Other than that its pretty close to what is there. If you look into the distance you can see you can take a left, that will lead you out of the park and if you take a right you get to where you can go walk on some nice docks. Its 8 x 10 inches, oil on masonite. $200.
