Downtown Georgetown

Today the Plein Air Austin group painted in downtown Georgetown, Texas. It started to rain after a little while so I quit before I felt like I was finished. I am posting what I painted there en plein air. I used a 9 x 12 panel. I'm trying to force myself to paint larger when out in the field. I got comfortable painting 6 x 8s so now it's time to go bigger. I did not have an 8 x 10 with me so I really got to practice. I haven't been out painting in a couple weeks and it felt great to be outside. I can't even be upset about the rain because we need it so badly.

The bad news is I haven't painted in a week and a half. The good news is my Mom is cancer free and healthy after our visit to Chicago's Block Medical Center.

This is from the DPW Challenge called the Whole Cat and Kaboodle. It is a 5 x 5 Oil on Panel. Although I felt a little rusty, this guys was too cute not to paint!
