My last two attempts at plein air painting were not worth posting. Today I feel good about this one. I decided to take the dogs out to Martin Pond and see if I can get a painting in. At one point I heard a large splash and I turned around thinking it was one the bull frogs, only to catch a glimpse of my Dachshund, Lucy swimming in the green duckweed by the bridge. I think she will get a bath later. The green pond scum was challenging along with the teal green bridge. The bridge color was created using a combination of pthalo green and Ultramarine blue.
