8″x10″ oil on panel

There is a contemporary Dutch painter I really like named Roos Schuring.  She paints en Plein Air in all kinds of weather, including horrendous rain storms.  Unintentionally, I got my own taste of painting from life in a downpour today.  I took my chances on a 40% chance of rain after 2pm.  It was pouring at noon, I knew it was a gamble.  It was cold for August, but not scary cold.  So I painted and got wet.   I think I will look into getting one of Roos’s wedding umbrellas, they are clear and domed – perfect for painting out a storm.
