It was HOT and HUMID but the humans at the festival were having a great time. General Grant spent a good deal of time visiting at the Cider House of Wisconsin tent. This was a super challenging plein air because the crowd thickened and moved all over, so I had to combine some figures from photos to finish them later on. The event was Aug. 20th.
Late in August a few of us from the Gettysburg Plein Air Painters Group (Stanley, Rose and me) met at the pond at Strawberry Hill to paint the charming pink cottage. I didn't quite finish before leaving. I do want to get back to this one. It was the first day after the heat broke and we could go out.
I'm Dianne and I live in South Central Pa. I belong to the Daily Painters of Pennsylvania and, recently, the Susquehanna Valley Plein Air Painters group. I work in pastels and watercolor mainly. I enjoy both working en plein air (for more about that, scroll down on the homepage) and in my modest sunroom studio.
