I went out and did this painting yesterday morning. It was a fantastic day for painting plein air. I only had an hour or so to do this, but I managed it in that time.
Where I was sitting with my little 6x8 Pochade, there is a pond, one of three in that area, and there were a lot of chaps fishing. I took some photos of some of them and will probably do some paintings of them, after cropping and the rest as one does.

Summer Tanager is from the South East of the United States and other parts. I would like to say that I went out there yesterday, spotted this chap, did a quick painting of him, and arrived back Home ( Kent England ) within 30 mins`.
As you know, it`s from a photograph.

This is a portrait of my painting mate and fellow club member. I did it from a couple of sketches and a photograph. I did all the basics from the sketches, then completed it from the photograph. His Eyebrows are really like that - possibly a bit wilder.

This is a Thames barge on the Norfolk Broads.
I think this painting is the most impressionistic
one that I have done, and I`m pleased with it.
This area is a very flat and open place. Hence,
there isn`t anything else in sight.
