Today was tailored made for plein air painting, which was fortunate because it was my first attempt. Perfect Spring temperature and very little wind...I think that's what makes for a good plein air day...that, and fun and creative artists to share the day with! Joined about 7-8 local painters who get together once a month at different locations around Dallas. Today they chose Exall lake, part of Turtle Creek in Highland Park, and also a popular picnic and walking area for locals since the late 1800's. Spring is definitely bursting out, starting with this flowering Bradford Pear tree. Will look forward to another outing with this talented group!
