Heathcote Hanging Flower Baskets, Plein Air Painting by Marcy Brennan

Heathcote Hanging Flower Baskets - 5" x 7" mixed media

This is a plein painting I did in February in the the Heathcote Botanical Gardens. The weather was set to "perfect" that day! I tried something a bit different. I usually paint en plein air using oils. I was inspired by the art of Loriann Signori, a Washington DC artist who works in watercolor and pastels. The underpaining is in watercolor with pastel on top, then ink and charcoal. This is a very impressionistic style and I'm liking it a lot!
