Plein Air Challenge: Day 17

Just playing with atmosphere and texture today. (Atmosphere is code for rain!).  Yes it's raining again.  I set up under a big oak tree which at first provided a pretty nice shelter.  Then the rain got really heavy and the shelter didn't do the job.  It's a good thing water and oil don't mix.  Although I've had a few comments on this blog about a resist happening when painting on acrylic primed canvas, and I must say I experienced that a little bit.  Painting thicker seemed to solve the problem.  I would be very curious if anyone else has had this experience and what they did to help it.  I haven't tried painting on oil primed linen in the rain, so that's next.
