The St. Lucie River on a Tuesday

These two plein air paintings of the St. Lucie River were done at the Veterans Memorial Park in Port St. Lucie, FL. One is smaller. I was on a huge boardwalk. Several other people painted from the giant size picnic pavillion. It was a breezy, pleasant day with jumping fish.

Plein Air Tuesdays

Here is a   plein air  painting recently done on a Tuesday, of course.

St. Christopher's - 10x8 oil on panel
St. Christopher’s – 10×8 oil on panel

This church is at the center of Hobe Sound, FL and is different on every side. So, I need to go back 3 more times at least to paint the whole church. It was a clear beautiful day and I was happy with this small charming painting.

Tuesday Paintings House of Refuge Beach

Last Tuesday, not yesterday but Tuesday of last week, we painted at the House of Refuge on Hutchinson Island, a narrow strip of land called Gilbert’s Bar. It was a nice breezy day and I decided to paint the beach instead of the buildings. The limestone rocks alone are an interesting subject. Even though I had time for a second small painting I still painted the rocks and ocean instead of the buildings. So here are mama and baby paintings from last Tuesday.

Met some friendly beach walkers and one dog that was mostly interested in digging to China.

 

Pastel Demo and more Tuesday Paintings

Recently I was asked to do a demonstration of my method of painting with watercolor and pastels at a local art club. It was a fun morning and well received. Here is the painting I did for them that I started with a watercolor underpainting.
