Sitting in Farm Fields

I started my new series painting the sustainable organic farms of the Snoqualmie Valley! While the weather is good I have been sitting in the fields painting out of doors and it has been dreamy. This is a 12 inch sketch of the lake at Oxbow Farm which has a restored wetland. 

It is a challenge to paint quickly "en plein air" as opposed to my usual studio style and I have been toying with approaching it in various styles but this one is a basic impressionist study.  I'll take my little studies into the studio soon and make some large and detailed pieces in my usual style.
