Plein Air Sketch
Today was a perfectly beautiful day in the Missouri Ozarks. The sky was blue, the trees in the Mark Twain National Forest were at peak color and Noblett Lake looked like a jewel in a lovely jewel box. This is the view (from above) of the area below the spillway. The painting is not much to write home about....I need about a million miles on the brush with plein air painting. It was a lovely day though and it was fun to get out and attempt this. Despite the biting bugs and the fierce wind, it was a great time outdoors! :D Many of the passersby seemed to think more of the painting than I did. They were quite kind.
