"CHURCH AT ALGODONES"
I went to a plein air paint out at Dixon apple Farms on Friday. Sad to say, I did not see one other painter anywhere out there. It was beautiful and I will be posting some photos later. I also went to the little village of Pena Blanca, then I went to Placitas and Algodones. I saw this quaint little church and knew I had to paint it. It's painted with Golden Open acrylics, which are slow drying - more like oils. Which is good for plein air because you get sun, heat, and wind, which dry your acrylic paints out in no time at all. Anyway, I had a wonderful solitary getaway and can't wait to do it again! If you are interested in this painting, it is available. It has to completely dry and I will be adding some glazing to the shadows.
Also, I have a new post on my weight loss blog:
