Plein Air out of my cigar box pochade box
Yesterday I checked out Jef Gunn's plein air demonstration at Mt. Tabor. I sure like how he paints with abandon. He certainly has an exceptional grasp of what he is doing despite what he describes as a bit of a "seat of his pants" approach. After I watch an accomplished painter paint I try to emulate them to some degree. It's a fun thing to do. I wanted to see if I could simply respond to the scene without a lot of inner gab about specifics. This is the result.
