This is another plein air from the Brown County State Park as part of the Art in the Park Project Grant I received from the Indiana Arts Commission and the Department of Natural Resources.
I set up in one spot at the pool but ended up moving to another spot. People constantly on the move can make it difficult to compose a painting!
I start the painting by blocking in the deep rich blue of the pool.
I add the background and start popping in the swimmers, one gesture at a time!
These young ladies were two pairs of sisters in the park on a camping trip, enjoying the final days of summer before returning to school. They saw me starting to pack up my painting and came over to see the final result.
