A Fantastical Day

Those of us who made it to Fantasy Farms on March 4th had a really marvelous day. The weather was glorious for one thing, a tad cool in the morning, but warming to perfect. We've had lots of great plein air days in the our five years, but Fantasy Farms was definitely distinctive and unique. Thanks to Kevin Arthur for setting this up for us.

 It was definitely the sort of place that required a lot of wandering around to decide what should be painted. There were so many options.

This striking Chinese Golden Pheasant was sure a stand-out among the birds.

The llamas had such appealing faces.

They even had a cute little wallaby.

 Some folks got down to painting or drawing pretty quickly.

Others had to take a while to study the possible subjects.

It was a great place for taking lots of reference photos as well.

But eventually most folks settled down and chose subjects to paint.

And as you can see from some of these paintings from the morning there definitely was a wide range of interest in the choices that were made.
