To go do a simple plein air sketch, you gotta have your gear at the ready, and packed in the car is best. I loaded my 3 set ups a few weeks ago and have gotten out a few times. I always wonder why I dont' go more, and fully intend to; just somehow doesn't always turn out that way.
But with my gear loaded, its pretty easy to just hop in the car and go! Here's my sketches of recent...
|Wet Road 5x5 pastel on canson paper I didnt' even bother with sketchbook for a thumbnail, and this set fits in my lap in the drivers' seat, its very small! Its somewhat a limited set but I was able to get what I wanted for the most part.|
|Field Studies, 6x6 and 6x9 copyrightCMCernetisch These 2 are from sunnier days than the top on, and were both done on uart paper, with an underwash that you can still see.|
