Today I was able to attend my plein air session at the Reed-Turner Nature Center in Long Grove, IL. What a beautiful place! There are lots of trees with their leaves turning orange, red and yellow and densely grown foliage to look at. What a treat to be able to have no rain and clouds that were spectacular all morning long to paint. Here is the painting that I did from the session. It is 7 x 10 gouache on hot press. Gouache is becoming one of my favorite paint mediums, next to pastels. With the plein air though, its easy to transport my watercolors and gouache, so I concentrate on those mediums when plein airing.
