|Planting Leeks, plein air, 8 x 10 inch oil on stretched linen.
A few days ago I helped plant hundreds of tiny leeks into a long row in one of my mom's gardens. Today, with many more to add to the row, I was a slacker, and painted instead. ;) It was a beautiful sunny morning and early afternoon, but I could see the clouds moving in from the west. I had to hurry to block in the shadows before they disappeared, and also sketch in the figures before they moved elsewhere!

I was just cleaning up my brushes and palette when the first rain drops started to fall.
