Saturday, Feb. 24. From the west side of Lake Sacajawea in Longview; we could see the reflections of Longview Community Church in the water. I have always wanted to paint this view. But it was cold and I'm not sure I captured it in just 1 hour and 45 minutes.
This is my second plein air painting in 2008. Allan gessoed our panels. You can see the painting he did that day on his blog.
I did the whole painting with a palette knife. The paint is really thick and still not dry. I think I am getting better. I love the squishy quality of paint on a knife. It was fun!
