I began searching for a place to paint, hopefully with some of the gorgeous farmland as a backdrop. I wandered down a strip of road flanked on both sides by an automotive swap meet and open fields. Capping off the swap meet in the middle of the road were parked two planes from the museum. I walked around and found a the angle I wanted and set up the easel. As I painted, many people came by to see what I was doing, and some even took photos! It was very breezy that day and I had to clamp down the canvas to keep it from flying away. I ended up with a sunburn and the painting posted here.
Work in process- painting en plein air in Paso Robles at the Warbids Wings & Wheels Show. Many great planes and classic cars were on display, I found a great angle to paint the rolling countryside of Paso Robles, California behind a British warplane. The weather was warm with a cool, constant wind that threatened to blow my canvas off the easel. I will post the final painting soon.
