#art365 at the dunes

Every spring the scouts go on a hike to the Indiana Dunes State Park. It's an amazing place, which I can honestly say now that I am not exhausted from the hike. Last year I took a photo that ended up being used as an underpainting reference for roots. This year, firmly involved in the #art365 project, I was looking for ideas to use for this series. Most  of the time, I just walk outside and then paint what I see, but sometimes there are reference pics. Below you can see some of the reference pics and finished pieces.
