|Limekiln Creek Study |

6"x8" Oil on RayMar Canvas Panel
Since I was down the hill, I still had to walk back up before I started out, but I quickly headed home to get my painting gear and then drove out headed across the valley to paint with her in Limekiln Canyon near her home. We have a mutual friend, Beth Summers, who paints there with her palette knife often. I've been intrigued ever since seeing Beth's colorful paintings and have wanted to paint there, so despite the very short time frame, I went. It was a lovely area.
I only had about an hour and a half before having to pick up Tyler, so after walking in with Diane, we settled on a spot near the creek and I began to block in my little 6x8. Time flew by. Knowing that the plein air police wouldn't care, I finished it up later while listening to the Super Bowl.... Does that make it a super study??? LOL
Contact me HERE if you are interested in purchasing this small painting.
There were many other people in the area enjoying the beautiful weather and scenery but we were having fun just painting. I had to leave before finishing but I think it will be a place I'd like to go back to. You can see my sketch above. I imagine that Diane may have posted hers as well.
