Plein Air

I haven't posted for a while because we finally got some real summer weather and I have been outside. I've been taking the easel up to the roof deck to paint "en plein air" with the sun on my shoulders. Here are zuccinis from my farm box (with a cucumber I grew myself!) And blackberries from the alley. 

The light shifts so quickly that a very fast, sloppier painting style is necessary than my usual. It suits the relaxed feeling of summer. These paintings are 12 inches square.
