As mentioned in the Ducks post, the weather is so wonderful and the landscape so enticing, I have been doing plein air painting in watercolor for the past week. Did I mention that there are no bugs yet?!
Here are some samples from the 15 quick paintings I did this week. I am posting more for reference than anything. They don’t meet my mental standard, but things can always improve, right?
These are very small, only about 4″ x 3″ each.
And here are some larger efforts, larger in terms of landscape and size of the work.
I painted the second scene twice in two days. While the second once was good, I liked the freshness of this first effort best. View is from top of Rooster Hill, 5 minute drive from my place.
Well, the sun is coming down enough to make the landscape less washed out and a bit more enticing. So, I’m off to do another one.
