Plein Air with "Smudge" @ Atlanta Botanical Gardens.


This was about 3 years ago. Late in Fall.
I went and painted plein air in the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. This was the fountain in the Rose Garden.
I love to use pastels for ease of use, colors, etc.
BUT ... as I found out when I made a trip to the restroom - just call me "Smudge" ... my face was COVERED in all kinds of pastel colors!
Fortunately not TOO MANY people had stopped to speak to me. :)
Oh ... now I know why they didn't stop to speak to me! HA!

Hope you enjoy this, and I (and others, I'm sure) are looking forward to YOUR stories and photos of Plein Air painting.
