Plein Air study of old Fannin County courthouse and crepe myrtle in front. From yesterday’s class with @karenmargulis, a pastel artist from Marietta. I’ll be writing a blog post about her class next week.
Karen had just completed a demonstration of painting plein air and chose this tree as her subject. It was blazing hot, and I didn’t want to drag my supplies across town to find a new location.
So I painted in the same spot, but added the backdrop of the old courthouse, with the columns’ background bathed in orange reflected light.
