Painting a Day - #24 & #25

You saw this one from yesterday's post from painting at the iris farm. Here it is again, as painting a day #24 and below this is painting a day #25. I figured it's been awhile since I posted my daily paintings, (I've been busy working on orders) that I should try to get caught up here.

6x6 oil painting.
Here's painting #25.

Plein Air Paint Out - Pleasant Valley Iris Farm

We had a very nice turn out today, nine painters showed up to paint. My friend, Mark, and his wife, Kendall, allowed our group to come out and paint the irises in bloom. So pretty. Thank you so much, Mark and Kendall! We had a lovely day out there.

Mike and I were the first to arrive and I walked around for a bit first, checking out what might interest me to paint. The first thing that drew my attention was their house set upon the little hill, with the irises below and a path going up to the house. It was such a sweet view,  I knew right away it was a for sure painting. I painted that and then painted another and another. All in all, three little paintings down today for me. I'll share the other two in later posts.

Here's the first one I painted:
Mark and Kendall's, House on the Hill. 
Me, painting Anvil of Darkness.
Here's the rest of the photos from today.

Plein air #23

Here's my latest, it's an 8 x 10. When we were painting in Tiburon last month, I snapped a photo of this house by the roadside with Mt. Tam behind it for future reference and decided to do a quick little study of it.

#24 Landscape - Point Reyes Seashore

We were painting in and around Point Reyes and happened to come upon this beautiful scene off the road. There was nowhere to park to paint this plein air so my husband slowed the truck down for me to capture a reference photo.
