Friends, at the Friends Meeting House, San Jose
I completed another speedy quarter sheet painting yesterday at the Friends Meeting House in San Jose. I loved the bare trees and their smooth light branches snaking over a grey sky. The morning began very overcast, but by the time I stopped painting the sun was out and the light was completely different. This is always the challenge of plein air painting - working fast enough to capture the mood and light before it changes.
