This painting was done en plein air.  That is the fancy way of saying that it was painted on location outside, in plain air.  Painting on location can be quite difficult; the light changes, there’s bugs, you have to hike around with your gear…. Then there are times like this!  I had such a great time standing amongst the pine trees in the St.Paul Minnesota park!!  It was a beautiful day in august when I painted the above scene.  If you look close at the bottom of the painting, you can see the under-painting.  For this one, I used English Red, brushed on with a lot of Gamsol, and then rubbed off with a Viva paper towel.
