Grey Morning at Hook Pond
Stepped out of my comfort zone yesterday and painted out of doors with other artists! This is very, very big for me. As a certifiably certified perfectionist, I only want people to see the artwork when it is done... never in process. So this was big - as I have already stated.
The group of artists belong to the Artist Alliance of Easthampton NY. They are a great bunch and we met at Hook Pond. While the sun never actually stuck its head out all morning, at least it did not rain. Ironically, when I packed up my paints earlier in the day to set out on my new plein aire adventure, I threw in a tube of grey - not a regular in my palette. As the title of this painting implies... grabbing the grey turned out to be a perfect idea!
