Winter Project-Portland Plein Air and Studio Painters

My plein air art group is not doing much outdoor painting right now.  It is pretty cold and wet out there!!  We have a project to do our interpretive paintings from photographs.  It's part of what goes on "behind the scenes" with us.  For January, we could choose one of three and I chose a still life.  This is the painting.  It is a watercolor and is about 15" by 28"--unframed and unmatted at this point.  I much prefer painting from life, but this is a fun excercise and gives us a chance interpret the same subject, and we usually do it in very different ways.  The others can be seen at, which includes results of some of my artist friends who painted this scene, one of the other two, or a combination.  We have new projects for February!
