Murphey Candler Park 9 x 12 on Panel
This fall I took a plein air workshop and then a plein air class. I will talk about the plein air workshop at a later date. Our class went to different locations around Atlanta to paint outside. We ran into all kinds of circumstances! Taking the wrong routes and going on a long hike with our equipment, dealing with rain, snakes, and spiders. Luckily I happened to walk over the snake and didn't see him! This painting I did on location at Murphey Candler Park, which is inside the perimeter. I think I had gone by there once maybe to play tennis. On this day it was very cloudy and cold. At first I didn't know if I would find anything interesting to paint, but after searching this simple site was just what I needed. I really like how this painting turned out. It was what I envisioned from the beginning when I started it. On Friday the 9th Anne Irwin Fine Art will have the Atlanta Landscape/Scene show. It starts at 6-8:30. Please stop by. I have several more paintings in the show, but I won't have a chance to post them before the show. You can always visit the website.http://www.anneirwinfineart.com .
