Day 6 -Plein Air Zinnias

Painting outside is fun, and I haven't been able to much all summer.  Friday, my group headed to Woerner's Garden Center in Pensacola.  The weather was overcast and threatening rain, so I scoped the area and settled in to paint a lovely flowering vine.  After that, I considered leaving when I spied a lonely, brilliant orange zinnia.  I quickly sketched in a composition and put In a first paint pass, but then it was time to go.  Finished the last few accents when I got home.  It never did rain,despite the threat!
