PPPA: Painting Old Town Ft Collins

Old Town Impression

Getting the dark values in first

My vantage point at Linden & Walnut
The last day I painted during the Paint the Poudre Plein Air 2014 event I went to "Old Town" in Fort Collins, Colorado.  I went with a group of art friends and we started by 6:30AM, when the light is the best. I decided to paint the Loomis and Andrews block on the corner of Walnut and Linden streets right across the street from the square where I set up my pochade box.  Old Town Fort Collins is well known for it's historic buildings, great shopping and atmosphere.  My friend Amy Lewark was painting on the corner so I decided to paint the plein air painter painting in my picture as it just captured the moment. This original oil painting is for sale. Inquire for availabilty
