September Challenge Day 1

Hood Street House

This was a plein air painting done under the instruction of Levi Myers at the Hood Street Art Center here in McDonough.  My learning curve was very steep as this was done with brushes instead of my favored palette knife and my canvas was at eye level to try and capture the correct angles and proportions.  

Although my painting is less than perfect, my knowledge of painting en plain air is greater.  I do feel I found the serenity and gentle quietness of this sweet Southern home.
