First Plein Air Sketch of the Year

5x7 oil

I got out for a couple of hours this afternoon to get some exercise and do some painting if a scene presented itself to me. It wasn't the greatest weather for painting, overcast, cold and windy, but I like being out no matter what the weather.
I wanted to experiment with different colors and switched a few colors for the winter months.
I found a spot along the lake where a lot of geese were coming and going and I figured they would add a bit of interest to the scene. It was nice listening to them calling to each other as a new group flew in.
