I’ve been wanting to try En plein Air for a while now but I lack in portable painting equipment. So yesterday I dragged some stuff out on my balcony and gave it a shot. I don’t have a very nice view, back yards, parking lot and a couple of dumpsters, but there is a few interesting trees.
Progress Shot! I had to use a clip cause my canvas board kept blowing into my palette.
After 3 hours this is what I came up with! I think I got too caught up in the details. I liked the bigger brush strokes I was starting with in the previous picture. Oh well, next time.
Here it is again in indoor lighting.
My balcony view. I was painting that tall tree top in the distance.
The set up! Definitely going to do this again. Much more fun then painting still lifes.
