An Outside Job

8 x 10

A few years ago I took a plein air workshop.  It was in July of 2010 which was a summer of grueling heat and humidity. The model was a friend of the artist conducting the workshop and generously baked in the sun as we painted.  This was from one of the reference photos I took that day. I tried to approach painting it in the studio with the same loose, efficiency you have to use in the field.


  1. You did a great job on this. I just KNEW it plein air when I first saw it!

  2. Another amazing painting, Terri! Wow!

  3. this is stunning. Especially love the flowers. Hope she used sunscreen.

  4. Nice strong values and composition.

  5. Thank you Linda, Sharon, and Karen for your comments. You are the motivation I needed tonight!

  6. Beautiful, Again!
    Love the interesting field!
