Last Saturday, September 18th, I painted in Winnsboro, South Carolina at Barbara Yongue’s Plein Air Paintout, an event in conjunction with Oil Painters of America. 28 artists participated in the event and set up an exhibit for a reception in the afternoon. I painted on Congress Street, the main thoroughfare of the town. As usual, I was more interested in the trees along the side streets than the buildings. I started with a transparent underpainting of orange and red to contrast with the variety of greens in the foliage, leaving just a suggestion of the red brick buildings in the background.
