Plein air paintings and drawings from around Silicon Valley.

Linda Vista Park, Cupertino
I enjoy encouraging people to paint and so yesterday's "Intro to Plein Air" was a great opportunity for me to meet some new faces and help them feel more comfortable painting outdoors. It was a lively group and I think everyone enjoyed getting to know other SCVWS artists and share experiences.
Every white sheet of paper is a new challenge. Caroline made a good subject out there on the grass. For some strange reason my scanner has intensified the colors and made the darks almost black - the original is not so contrasty. I'm painting redwood trees over the next few days so I hope to improve!
