1471 Oaks in Savannas Meadow Plein Air Alla Prima
painted this from life, it was a perfect day out, not too hot or cold.
Its very pretty out here, lots of tiny wild flowers if you stop and
look close. Saw two gopher tortoises chasing each other and a baby one
coming out of its hole. The painting is oil on masonite, 8 x 10 inches,
Plein air painters are inspired by nature. Capturing the everchanging light is our passion - and our challenge.
Each of these paintings is a one-of-a-kind original painted on site.
Southern Plein Air Painters are excited to present our artwork to an appreciative audience. Enjoy the images on your screen now and add to your collection easily by purchasing these paintings through PayPal.
