Plein Air paintings

For the last eight weeks, I've been taking a plein air painting class at Bellevue College with Emmett McLaughlin. Every Saturday, we met at the Bellevue Botanical Garden to paint, and today was the last day.

Here's my output for the class in chronological order:

Trees of a certain distance

Garden path At the Garden

Ravine bridge
Garden Falls Ravine Bridge

Actually, the first painting I did for the class is not in this list. It was so bad, I am not sharing it. :P Have I gotten better over time? 


  1. Now I'm curious as to what the first painting looked like! :)

  2. It look like someone drank a tub of green paint and puked all over the canvas :/
