I  did get some Plein-air's  painted this summer - - -- but posting was hard as I lost my P C..  Now I  have a new one and am trying to get caught up.  It really was a great summer, cooler than most, and very nice days.  I can't believe its Sept all ready!!  This is the first one I did for a practice  right at my drive-way one morning.       After that , it was in April that the plein-air painters from Tahoe came down for the morning in April.  There were 21 painters at the ranch on Foothill road!!    I quickly joined them, and did  rough one of the old barn.

This one is on  pastel card by senniliar and I used a turpinoid under wash.  Its small, and the shadows went fast!   It was a fun morning, all the people were so nice

I will just load the next ones that I did this summer and end there.  The next one was in June, on a stormy morning .  Lots of fun!  I do hope to get some this fall , when all the color begins!!  Happy Painting.



  1. Great set of paintings here, Ida! Glad you've been out painting and glad you can now post and share your work again.

  2. Thank you for commenting on my blog Ida! I've tried my hand a few times at painting landscapes in Plein-air and they don't look remotely as good as yours!! Simply fabulous work on here.♥

  3. Its so nice to hear from the both of you, Colette and Ron. Thanks for taking the time. You both are working so hard at your art and it shows. I wish I were working as hard, that s what it takes,
