Second Look, Florida art, plein air


"Second Look" 
© Fawn McNeill 2011



This is the third painting I did at the Adams Ranch on location a few years ago. I had packed up most of my gear, and then looked back at this view from the other side of the path before I loaded up my easel. I was tired and ready to leave, but it was so beautiful, and I wanted to at least get this one started. So I went back and unloaded everything! Got a great lay-in, and almost finished it on location...... I touched up a few things and added a little more detail when I got home. I love the way it turned out! 


Enjoy!

Rocky Shore, plein air, birds


"Rocky Shore"  © 2007



I recently repainted part of this older plein air painting.  (Done on location.) 

The water level was very low, and the rocks made interesting patterns. It was challenging to say the least!  


The little blue heron stayed off to the far right most of the morning, and just before I finished up, the water turkey (anhinga) poked his head up a few times (near the bottom).


I loved all the colors and the rhythm in this painting, but I went back and toned down some of the rocks, mostly on the left and a little near the top, in order to direct the viewer's eye toward the bird on the right.

Over the Dike, Lake Okeechobee, Florida Art

 "Over the Dike"  
9 x 12 inches, 
Acrylic on hardboard
©2006     $350.00

Here is another older one of the Lake.  Below is a comparison to the same area (lock G36) when we had a drought for a couple of years.  I was fascinated with the new bright greens that showed up more and more as the water receded.  Haven't seen anything close to that since.

Inlet Shore, plein air, Florida landscape


"Inlet Shore"
© Fawn McNeill 2009

Challenging little Plein Air Painting (done on location) from Fort Pierce.  Little Jim's Bait Shop is located just to the right of this scene. 

The wind kept blowing things over, and the lighting changed drastically several times with the clouds blowing through. Have to paint fast and stick with the plan, because you cannot keep changing the painting to keep up with the changing elements.  
I like the way I captured the wind and choppy water.  

The sea grapes were finished back in the studio, and the pelicans were added later as well.  There were more pelicans fishing that day than what I added to the painting.
Enjoy!

Jetty Park, pelican, plein air, seascape






"Jetty Park"


 The inlet is one of my favorite places to paint. This one started as a plein air painting (demo, done on location: see below.) but I also had the privilege to teach one of my students at the same time. When I got home I added the choppy waves and the pelican on the rock right away, because the day was still fresh in my mind.  I didn't want to lose the inspiration. I added more detail to the trees and rocks too.

Bottle brush, gators, egrets, wildlife, plein air


"Bottle Brush"
Plein Air painting

Got to do a paint-out a couple of weeks ago, at White City Park (Fort Pierce, Florida).
I was drawn to this gator laying on the bank, and then a smaller one swam toward me!  There were birds everywhere, and of course the bottle brush trees were in bloom.  It was a lovely spring morning.

Bushes and Beaches, Plein air painting, seascape with sand dunes


"Bushes and Beaches"

Got to do a paint-out a couple of weeks ago! Even though it was extremely hot that morning, it was by far the best plein air (on location) painting  I have done in a long time.  Way too much fun with my friends from Pennsylvania!  Thank goodness for the little pavilion we had for shade and a cooler of ice cold water!

Butterfly Garden, plein air painting

"Butterfly Garden"
8 x 10 inches
Acrylic on hardboard
Sold


Got to do the last plein air (out doors on location) paint-out with Lori McNamara until fall.  It was muggy and hot and very hard to get inspired at first. But once I got going I really enjoyed it.  This is at the Oxbow Eco-center in Fort Pierce. Had a little girl watch off and on, and then she got so close I wanted to give her the brush!  She loved it and told me what a good job I was doing.  Too cute!

Added the cardinal (which I saw flying around), and the butterflies (which were not flying around) after I got home. I couldn't paint the butterfly garden and not add butterflies!

Shore of Refuge, plein aire painting



"Shore of Refuge"

Got to go out on a paint-out last week.  It was windy and cold, so we painted under a pavilion on the inter coastal side (at the House of Refuge) instead of the actual beach.  Tried to capture the feeling of stormy weather, with the sun breaking through.  By the time I finished up, the sun came out and it was absolutely beautiful! I have one in progress from the photos I took on the ocean side of this area.  It looks like completely different days!

Enjoy!

Inlet Park, plein air painting, Florida seascape


"Inlet Park"

Did this a few years ago with my plein air group out in Fort Pierce. It was far more challenging than I imagined to capture the windy day and the changing colors of sky and water.  I love the end result, however, and think I captured the effect I was after.

This is the right side of the path I posted last week. The spring actually runs all the way around the little hill in that painting (End of the Road).

End of the Road, Florida landscape with natural springs

"End of the Road"


Plein air painting I did at the Adams Ranch for Saturday's paint-out. The water actually runs all the way around the little hill. These natural springs are all over the ranch. Some of them have a sulfur smell to them, but this one didn't. The kite birds kept swooping down in front of me, and I was able to get some pretty good photos of them. It was cool and breezy too. What a perfect morning!

Enjoy!

G-36, Lake Okeechobbe canal, landscape

"G-36, Lake Okeechobee canal"




This is one of the first plein air paintings I did with a palette knife. I always liked the way it turned out. It was very windy that day, which added to the challenge. I felt quite proud of myself for finishing it!

The Cave, hidden cabin, plein air at EdenLawn

"The Cave"


About This Painting:
From a paint-out at EdenLawn, in Jensen Beach. This little cabin is nicknamed "the cave" because it has always been overgrown with trees and plants. I love the blue door and the way the cabin is hidden in all the foliage.


Eden Lawn was originally a pineapple plantation. Then it was a place to rent cabins, with a pool and a fancy restaurant. Now it is under renovation, and has some very interesting old houses and cabins.


Thanks for looking!
