A week and a half ago I had the pleasure of attending the Masterpiece Christian Art Confrence in beautiful Greensprings OregonSince this was a three day conference I decided it was worthy of three posts. Day one we had a plein aire demonstration by Mick Mcginty a prolific Illustrator and all around phenomenal artist. A few of us were couageous enough to paing alongside him. My first painting of a cabin was not coming out very well, so I wiped it off and painted this study of an Oak tree right next to the cabin. At 9" x 12" it's the biggest plein aire I have completed and I really like the way it turned out.
