Star Gazers 8x12 oil on linen en plein air
This is another plein air painting from this past saturday's wet paint event in Douglas. This was such a treat to paint because while I was standing at my easel the wonderful scent of these beautiful lilies was filling the air. It was early in the morning. The dew was still on the grass, I had my cup of coffee and the robins were searching for breakfast all around me. How delightful!
I love the way these lilies arch so gracefully and their stamens reach for the ground or sometimes look like they want to find the sun, curving up so delicately!
