Painting at the Mint

Painting on the Grounds of the Mint Museum

oil on canvas panel

I painted this one en plein air last Tuesday with my painting group, The Plein Air Buds.  The grounds of the Mint Museum are fairly extensive with trees, open areas of grass, roses, etc.  I walked around looking for a spot--as I usually do when I arrive.  Finally I knew I better get started so I decided on this one.  In plein air painting it is important to always set the easel up in shade, or otherwise you painting will be too dark.  Been there!  I brought it inside and it just died right before my eyes!
