I dropped my older daughter for band practice this morning and headed out to the local park.

The weather was sooooo perfect.  No wind and the temp was cool 70deg F and the sun was bright.  It was absolutely fantastic. I took my Guriella pochade box.  I think I will take the Soltek out next.

It took about over an hour to complete this.  I had to paint in a hurry, as we all know about changing light conditions when painting outside and off course it made me simplify things and get rid of details.

I am very hooked after this session.  The whole experience was awesome, I had to simplify and make decisions on the go.  I think this will make me a better painter... I have a long ways to go... every journey starts with a single first step... Smile

Yes! some of you will have issue with centering the shed... but life is about breaking some rules... Smile.

Please comment away... any and all constructive feedback are welcome (even the placement of the shed.. Smile )

Time Taken: About an Hour (1 hour).
Size: 5" x 7"

I really like the colors and values that you used. This is absolutely great for 1 of your first plein air paintings. You captured so much in such little time. What is that white spot on the tree in front, left? I guess that those are the fronts of a couple on canoes at the very bottom, and think you might be better off without them. Just my opinion, it's up to you. Great job!

Very well done. The larger evergreen to the left of center helps balance the shed which is right of center. You did a great job on all of it and in such a short time. I'm assuming those canoe tips are actually brackets that hold the canvas in place.

Thanks guys (I left a feedback ealier, but it did not show up... Wink I see the white spot on the tree... Smile It is an accidental blemish during the painting... hmmm.. I missed it. Also the canoe is not just the brackets to hold the canvas.

I truly appreciate your feedback... Smile

Are there actually canoes in the painting that have been cropped off? It makes it confusing and detracts
from the rest of the painting with just those small tips showing.

LOL... oops! pardon my type-o... no they are brackets and NOT canoes... sorry! The brackets came up, because I took the picture at the park... right after completing the painting.

Thanks

Faisal

Nice work, wow you painted quickly to cover this in an hour. I don't have any criticism or comments on this, just pleased that you are getting out and painting. All good!
