Finger Lakes Plein Air Festival

9"x12" acrylic on canvas
I participated in the Community Paint Out that was part of the Finger Lakes Plein Air Festival. We had two hours to complete a painting on site. I chose this view of the mansion. The weather was perfect for painting outside: sunny but not too hot.

I used Golden OPEN Acrylics because they dry a lot slower than regular acrylics. This comes in handy when painting outdoors. If you want to watch me paint this, I have a video on YouTube.

Here's a photo of me working on the painting. Photo by Joann K Long.
