Jacksonville Commons Plein Air Series...
"A Stroll in the Park"... 6x8" acrylic en plein aire by Bernie Rosage Jr., 10/24/2010.
My wife, Tami, is an avid runner and loves to run the 3 mile loop around the Jacksonville Commons. Our daughter, Olivia, usually joins in on the fun by following/leading with her bike. I exercise my creative muscles by plein air painting while they are off really exercising! This allows me 45-minutes to an hour for some small 6x8" quick studies. I sat on a park bench and tried my new homemade cigar pochade box for this one.
Stage one... the block in. Sometimes I will block my plein air paintings in the complimentary colors as seen here.
