Painting plein aire

A couple of weeks ago our local plein aire group went to a private home to paint for the morning. It had some amazing garden areas that were just fun to discover! Here are some of my favorite photos from this outing, along with what I chose to paint & the preliminary drawing. The choice of what & where to paint was dictated by the amount of shade available to sit in since it was predicted to be a very hot day. You can right click on any photo & open it in a new window or tab to view it larger if you'd like.

This was the driveway gate:

Just inside the gate was this lovely garden!

I'm always drawn to Canna Lilies...

Notice---shady location!

I'll share a photo of the completed painting as soon as I finish.
