An Art day at Champoeg Park...






A favorite way to get started...a liquid acrylic underpainting.
Today was a day to relax and have fun.
I vowed to let go of expectations,
and work at being loose and spontaneous. 


My focus was the blooming Echinacea. 
I did a quick pastel sketch to play with colors,
 before starting on my painting. 



Denise enjoyed the Hollyhocks, and 
did a pencil sketch before beginning to  
add detail with watercolors.


A wonderful day shared
 in the 
Kitchen Garden
at
 Champoeg Park!



It's almost finished!
