Today the Sacramento Plein Air Painters met in Locke. It was a beautiful morning, but cold in the shade. After about an hour and one half working on this painting, I had to stand in the sun for 30 minutes to thaw out! I guess I shouldn't complain too loudly though...in most of the rest of the country, this weather would be very welcome.
Sometimes I find myself wandering in Locke. It is so incredibly fascinating and unique that it's difficult to settle on something to paint. But today I arrived a bit late so I set up fairly quickly. I made a quick pencil sketch and felt like I had a good feel for what I wanted to paint. I made a real effort to keep things simple. I think it worked out well.
