I thoroughly enjoyed painting with the Plein Air Colony of Pinnelas this past Monday over at Fort DeSoto Beach. I've admired paintings of this subject by other artists for a while and was interested in trying my hand at it too, but hadn't even realized we have them growing here in Florida! As it turns out, the organic forms, with their subtle shifts in temperature and values, along with the various textures, make for really fun subject matter! So much so, that we all returned the following day to do it again!
