First Attempt at Outdoor Plein Air

I made my first attempt doing Plein Air painting when Tom and I were on vacation.  We went to Mustang Island State Park, which is on Padre Island Texas.

Of course, we discovered that the bag of supplies weighed too much so next time will try to pack lighter.It was really sunny and windy, and I got tired standing the entire time. 

This is the photo of the scene and the finished quick study. I didn't like how the painting turned out, it seemed to get worse as I painted. But it was fun, and will definitely try it again.
