plein air

Trying to get back to painting outdoors. I was given a 6x9 pochade box by a friend awhile back and I didn't even know what it was. After he showed me a few of his paintings, I was determine to learn how to paint. I then forced myself to paint a small painting a day for a complete year...an ambitious goal I have never achieved. I've managed a little over a hundred paintings until winter came around...bbuurrrr. I'll post some of those soon.

This particular painting was of a historical house in Pasadena early one morning. (It actually started to rain on me.)

water soluble oils on illustration board. hated to carry around turpentine.

I look forward to seeing more of these paintings. The house is beautiful. The lighting is nice too.
