Artist in the Park
8"x10" oil on linen
This painting was done last Thursday during the Paint Sarasota Paint Out Quick Draw Painting Contest. We had exactly 2 hours in which to start and complete a painting on the grounds of Phillippi Estate Park. I'd scoped the area out about a week before and had a few spots in mind to paint, however it'd been a bright, sunny day... and on the morning of the Quick Draw it was grey and overcast, causing me to rethink my view! Ended up just going with the feel of the day and spontaneously picking this spot under a big live oak across from a fell painter.
(Also ended up winning an Honorable Mention with this one!)
