#15 - One Year/100 Paintings - Last week I was on vacation and was able to get out one chilly day to paint at Lake Marburg. I first hiked around the lake, but was unable to find a suitable subject, but then on my way back to my car, I found this view. I had packed a thermos full of coffee, my lightweight pochade box made from a metal document holder and a tripod seat.

I tried to work quickly and not get caught up too much in the details, my painting style is still emerging. Finding the tube colors difficult to mix without being too vivid, I'm going to watch videos by other plein air artists to see what colors they are using on their palettes. It was getting toward noon and my appetite was building, not to mention the chill in the air, so I finished quickly to have a leisurely lunch at The Famous in downtown Hanover.
