11×14 oil on canvas
Painted on site at the 3rd annual Big Cedar Paintout near Branson Missouri. This was my 1st year attending this painting competition, and what a fun time it was. This was a nocturnal “quick paint” competition on the 2nd night of the event.
What a perfect setting for me to paint, they were having a little campfire roasting s’mores and drinking hot cocoa. Little did I know that they would be leaving in less than 30 minutes to go on a scavenger hunt. I painted quickly, and when the people left, I threw in the background areas.
A fun time, and a great exercise in learning to loosen up.
