catching the light at Harry Griffin Park

Poor, pitiful plein air painter that I am...trying to catch the light and put it to canvas. Neither paintbrush nor camera can catch what the eye can see of God's wonderful creation. But I had a great time beside the creek in Harry Griffin Park this morning...painting away as the creek gurgled to the robins' tune. My, how the light can change in just an hours time!! I'll make a few quick adjustments and photograph the painting for posting soon.

Thanks, Lindsay,
I've tried several easels and portable containers, but this works great for me.

What a charming location, and your painting looks spot on too. Great set up, it that a soltec easel?

Yes, that's my Soltek. You can Google "Soltek" to find a video of how easily (and fast) it sets up. It was designed by a working artist and you can tell he had us in mind!! I love painting at this little park and listening to the stream babble on about nothing while I paint.
