Gettysburg 2014, Day 3. "Plum Run".

"At The Plum Run"
8x10" Pastel.

Second day of  Gettysburg Paint Out will be remembered as total Wash Out.
I was going to participate in Quick Draw event, but it was just no way to work
with my pastels at downpour we got there...
So I was hoping to catch up on my painting on Friday...

 ...and this is how lovely our Friday drive was!...
Not much expectations. I was getting ready to paint IN my car,
if it what I have to do this day...

 When we arrived to the park, it was no more rain AND plenty of people.
Even several media guys wandering around,
taking pictures and recording us painting.

 Colors were outstanding out there... I totally enjoyed myself,
but would be even more happy, if it would be just not that hot!..
But we made it works somehow. At list it was no more rain.

 Myself and several more painters worked at Plum Run this afternoon
and everybody did beautiful job. It was hard not to get inspired!

...and then of course some of our friends stopped by too... what was great -
we didn't see each other for a while and Carol's family several of
our schnauzers... But they didn't have any today with them and neither did we...
it was way to hot for the dogs.

 I finished my painting and framing right on place to the frame I had ready for yesterday's
Quick Draw event. On a way home I dropped both my paintings
to the Gettysburg College Alumni House, where they will be a part
of Plein Air exhibition.
Many paintings what are displayed there were painting during this event.

  1. Maybe it is the power of suggestion, but it looks as though you captured some of that rain spirit in your painting. I love that soft look and the colors are just gorgeous, Tatiana!

  2. You are totally correct... the feeling of the rain is here... and so was the rain. But I had just enough time to start and finish this work. I'm happy!
