Plein Air painting demo - Niagara Falls, Canada

Plein air painting demo at the last plein air painter workshop for 2008 in Niagara Falls, Canada.
The weather was so gorgeous for the plein air painting workshop - hard to believe it was only 10 days ago.
We had a full day at Niagara Falls with fab October clouds moving in and out, making for dramatic lighting patterns moving quickly throughout the day.
On Sunday, we spent the day painting in downtown Niagara Falls. Niagara Falls downtown is the site of the newly formed art community with a fair amount of traffic on weekends.
Nice to see the locals supporting the arts.
The video is from my point and shoot, so not a great resolution but...you get the idea.

Thanks for looking.
