Quiet on the River

Meramec River
A couple of weeks ago I was painting on the Meramec at Castlewood State Park. This is where the flooding is now. Then the river was quiet and spring was just starting. 8x8 inches. Ohttp://www.blogger.com/posts.g?blogID=33236477

The Meramec in the Spring

I always associate wild flowers with the early spring. This past Sunday the creek was littered with plein air painters. This is Dave ( on left) and Shawn standing on a gravel bar, painting away.

Stomy Sunday Forest Park
Henryk

The same weekend as the previous post. I just didn't put this one up. This is Henryk a supper painter who uses Old Holland pants, also. I love the rich color and the stiff texture of the paint. I do think it works well with the Maroger medium but I've been mixing my own stand oil and Gamsol or Sansoder medium for the studio. Outside, I'm currently using a small vial of Galkyd. Still, I think the Maroger is superior. The guy on the left is Bill Farthing.
