Benefits of Plein Air Painting

April 20, 2015

Last weekend my husband and I went to Pratt Park to paint.  It was a gorgeous day and, believe it or not, we had never been to that park.  What a great discovery with a playground, picnic area, tennis courts and lovely grounds. 

Whenever or wherever we go somewhere I take photos of things that catch my eye.  This backloader or backhoe grabbed me because of that great orange color.  It shows how something ordinary can have its own beauty.  Proof that there are things to paint everywhere. 


  1. I love the way you are able to stay so loose. It is not as easy as it looks! This is a Kybota and its orange is becoming as recognizable as John Deere green. Our Kybota tractor saw us through a very tough winter.

  2. Thank you, Sandra, now I know about Kybota and am a big fan. That tractor of yours is one good looking tractor! Useful and colorful is a good combination.
