Creating Art with Friends

Here we are, three friends, up in the hay field sketching and painting saskatoons,  a barn and ocean spray sprigs. The day was hot so we were limited time wise by the shade. I find that little bit of pressure keeps you working quickly without time for over working a piece. 

A wide variety of colours in the Saskatoon berries. Really gorgeous.

There is something loose and free about this painting. Perhaps I will add more in the studio or perhaps keep it as a practice piece.

This is not about creating art with friends but about hiking and enjoying nature's art with friends. Lovely, lovely bear grass. Yes some of the tops had been eaten off by bears!

Getting higher from where we started at the lake. Mountain lakes are one of my favorite things. Someone was even swimming in it that day. Brrr!

That's a gorgeous painting, Eileen - so very on-the-spot-painterly!

That painting is perfect, just the way it is!

Some of my favourite paintings are done under time constraints. I love the loose expressionistic quality of your berries.

Love those multi-coloured berries!
