This is my first Plein air painting with the SPA (Springfield Plein Air) for the 2011 season. The SPA opens the season with a potluck lunch at Lake Springfield in the boathouse. There’s an art contest and lots of enthusiasm to get out and paint. I sat my easel up and painted for about an hour (not long enough) then headed in to eat.

Painting from start to finish, the sketch, the under painting, the first color block in, and the final adjustments.

I have been painting on small masonite panels primed with gesso. I like the texture and because I’m preparing my own panels I can make it smooth or rough. I am also painting looser and with thicker paint allowing the brush work to show. I know a lot of artist work in this manner, but it is a new endeavor for me.

I love dimly lit still-lifes where the edge can get lost in shadow. This is only a small sketch 2 ¼” x 3”. I used a shadow box that I made for small still-life painting. I made a small hole in the top so that I could control the amount of light. For this sketch I covered the hole so that the only light source was the reflected light coming from the walls of the studio.

In the studio
This is only some of the preliminary work that I have done for the development of a very special painting. Planning is the key to being able to paint well, if I have to figure out how it is going to layout as I’m standing at the easel, it just doesn’t work for me.

The Civil War
About 15 years ago I took some photos of a reenactment of The Battle of Wilson’s Creek. I have been doing some sketches and working on some paintings to commemorate the 150 year anniversary of the battle; on August 10, 1861 it was the first major battles fought west of the Mississippi river.
