I recently attended a plein-air painting workshop with Lois Dodd. She was accompanied by her long time friend and accomplished painter Elizabeth O’Reilly. It was an energizing week, rich with valuable critiques of our work. We discussed issues concerning the making of a painting, and Lois and Elizabeth generously shared insights into their own work.
Above and below are some of the paintings I did. The first two days on the marsh were perfect plein-air weather. The last three were drenching rain, but we had shelter, windows to paint from, and camaraderie to keep us inspired.
