Dahlia Field

Last Wednesday our local Plein Air painting group headed to Frey's Dahlia farm NE of Jefferson OR. I enjoyed an opportunity to paint with watercolor, which isn't usually my first choice when painting plein air. Normally I work in pastel but leaving my stack of canvases on a chair put a stop to that. Luckily I brought watercolors, and a nifty new watercolor journal I'd just made the previous weekend. I also enjoyed the company of two good friends that were playing in watercolor too, so after touring the dahlia field we settled down to see what we could accomplish. Here's a glimpse of some of the beauties vying for our attention.
