Plein air..





I did some plein air work this weekend and the last weekend too at Lalbaugh. I am posting the outcome. Some okay, some not so okay. Anyway here they are. But its always great fun to paint outdoors.

I also realized that for some tricky compositions I needed to have a view finder. Hopefully I'll have one next time. And being a not so organized person I always end up forgetting something or the other. I think a checklist will of help. Those, who do not score very high on being organized must have a checklist for plein air painting I guess. Imagine if you forget your pad or your brushes.

Happy painting..

lovely! I have just started painting with watercolors and was wondering what paper you used . Do you stretch your paper before painting?

Beautiful, uplifting scenes Prabal! :0)

Gorgeous work Prabal! I think my favorite is the third one down, I love the way you paint reflections. :) And, I think we should start a club for Unorganized Artists Anonymous because I am the same way!

May,

Thank you for the visit and comment. I appreciate it.

Carol,

You must go outdoors. Its a lot of fun and very uplifting.

Bhargavi,
I used fabriano watercolor pad. Since the sheets are stuck to each other there was no need to stretch the paper. In fact it cant be done for a pad. :)
