Another of my favorite spots to paint is Mountain Park. It’s only about 5 minutes from the house and It has a lot of charm and a lot of water. Two of my favorite things, A few weeks back I went over on a Saturday and spent the afternoon on this view. My intent was to paint the pine trees at full height and get them in the painting. This is problem I often have of running them right off the top. I really concentrated on this but the painting has so much going on that It could of been 9 ft tall instead of 11 inches. I’m over the whole tree thing now. Half of this plein air game is picking the right thing to paint.
