Last Sunday I had the opportunity to visit La Caille to paint and spend time with fellow Utah artists. It was a great day and La Caille is a fantastic location to paint. I have never tried Plein Aire painting, so I wasn't sure what it would be like or what to take with me. I grabbed a small palette loaded with colors I like to use, my brushes, some watercolor sheets, a board to tape them to, a plastic cup for my water and a lawn chair. Once I arrived I started looking for a spot that inspired me but wouldn't give me too much information...I didn't want to be overwhelmed. I found a great gate framed by some trees. Nearby was a cottage with an arch and on the other side a little pond with ducks. I took a couple of photos, then got to work. While I was working a pair of peacocks strolled up, ducks landed in the pond so I took a break to take some photos. Before I knew it the time the Watercolor Society had arranged was ended and it was time to leave. I didn't quite finish my painting, but it was a fun experience. I want to go out again soon. Below are a few of my photos from the day.
