Dexter Nightlife, Plein Air Commission.  8 x 10 Oil on panel.  NFS

Dexter Nightlife, Plein Air Commission. 8 x 10 Oil on panel. NFS

I will deliver this painting to the Red Brick Restaurant in Dexter this week.  I was painting Night Visions at the Paint Dexter Plein Air Festival, and the owner asked for a commission of her restaurant.  I came back on the last night of the event to complete the work.  The temperature dropped down into the 50’s!  This was August!  I was not dressed for it, and ended up having to leave before I finished it.  I ended up with laryngitis, but thankfully it didn’t last long.  The laryngitis probably was due to all the talking I did during the event.  Most of the work was completed on location.  I added the people, benches and window lettering from a photo.  So, I think you can classify this as plein air.
