Winter Plein Air Painting by Colorado Contemporary Artist Laura Reilly

I've been longing to get outside for a little plein air painting, 
and yesterday was too nice a day to pass up!

Up on Mesa Rd., there's a tiny little piece of Open Space, 
a beautiful, dry wild landscape.

with gorgeous views of  the Peak.

Even though it was only 35 degrees out, I was in the sun and layered up -
 long underwear, painting shirt, fleece vest, fleece jacket - so I was toasty!  
It's been a long time since I painted with gloves on though.
The thin magic gloves work well.
