Twisted tree

Today was the first plein air paint-out of the First Coast Pastel Society for our fall season. A group of us all went to the Fountain of Youth in St. Augustine for a lovely day of painting. The weather was perfect for an early fall day in Florida. It started out a bit cloudy, but the sun later came out, and there was a wonderful breeze blowing in from the salt marshes. I was attracted  by a gnarled and twisted tree growing alongside the edge of the marsh and decided I had to paint it, so this was my first painting of the day, though I later did a second one as well.

This was done on 9x12 Art Spectrum paper. The twisted tree was such an attraction that two of the other plein air participants painted it also!
