En Plein Air: Almost Overshadowed (Oil, 9 x 12)
It was freezing cold this morning. The temperature came down to around 30+ F. Too cold to paint outside. I was deciding whether or where I should go today when out of the window I saw my neighbors' houses across from us were half shadowed by the buildings on our side. I was so impressed by the contrast in value that I wanted to paint it. So I set up by the window and started working on it. Well, even though it was done indoors, I still considered it a plein-air painting.
