Leaving Mary Elmer – Plein Air Watercolor

Leaving Mary Elmer watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci

Leaving Mary Elmer watercolor by Yvonne Pecor Mucci (Framed 11 x 14)

I participated in the Cohansey Riverfest Plein Air Competition in Bridgeton, NJ a few weeks ago.  The criterion was to portray the Cohansey River Watershed.  I was really torn choosing which view would make for a better painting, Mary Elmer Lake or the outflow from the dam.  Rain was threatening and the sun was hard to find, so the outflow view was the best choice.  It all worked out to a great day of painting outdoors and a 1st place award.

This plein air competiton was sponsored by the Cumberland County Cultural & Heritage Commission and Gallery 50 in Bridgeton, NJ.  Thank you to Matt and Gallery 50!

This painting is part of the Nature & The Landscape, An Environmental Perspective exhibit which runs through September 27th at Gallery 50.  There are 90 beautiful paintings on display.
