Associated Women in the Arts at Louisiana’s Old State Capitol

The Baton Rouge Plein Air group painted at Cinclare Plantation in Port Allen, Louisiana at the tail end of the sugar cane harvest. It was a cloudy, humid morning, and we spent quite a bit of time looking for a paintable scene. There were several white houses along a gravel road that led to another cane field. The structures appealed to me, but it was the color of the leaves and the road leading to a neutral colored field that made an impression on me. Fall color appears late in the season in SoLA, and as long as there is not a lot of wind, it hangs around for a few weeks. Knowing the trees would be stunning just as soon as the sun broke through the clouds, I blocked in the shapes, pushing the color where I believed it should be (and because it’s what I do) and waited.
Finally, the sun appeared, throwing light on the yellow, orange and red foliage. The clouds disappeared, and I was able to put some blue in the sky. Happy Day!
Baton Rouge Plein Air is currently showing paintings at The Foyer, 3655 Perkins Road, Baton Rouge, LA, in the Acadian Perkins Plaza Shopping Center. This group, which meets weekly to paint different locations in the area, recently celebrated its first year. The group is open to artists of all skill levels in different media.
