Painting #17 of 50: "Mansfield Sky"

Thursday, April 4, 2013: Finally painting this view of Mansfield directly after a great demo by Anneline Beaukencamp at the Essex Art League's monthly meeting. Sunny with temperatures around 50 degrees F with a bit of wind and I was all inspired by Anneline's enthusiastic demo, so I decided to go for a larger size. Favorite quote of the day from Anneline: "I try not to think too much when I paint." I couldn't agree more! If I think too much, it seems to slow me down and block the creative energy. Must be that she's an intuitive painter, too. I had fun staying loose, enjoying the process. Mansfield still had snow on it and the sky was lovely, so I chose a lower horizon to emphasize the mountain meeting the sky.

Welcome to Libby Davidson's Painting Blog

I am currently entering blogs from my 50 Project back in 2013-2014 as a way of sharing photos and journal entries of my plein air watercolor painting experiences. Lots of stories in the field through all seasons and all sorts of weather here in Vermont beyond. Hoping to get caught up to share more recent paintings.

If you have interest in viewing or purchasing my paintings, please email or call me. I plan to add a gallery section to this site soon to make it easier for you to see the many paintings I have available for sale.

Thank you!
