I spent the summer doing Plein Air watercolor studies. As mentioned in a previous post I reloaded my Cottman travel set set to suit my needs and with a moleskin watercolor notebook and water brush I am able to do these studies as conveniently as drawing with a pencil.
I fell in love with the Plein Air Painting ideals this summer and this is something I plan on taking further breaking away from the comfort of the sketchbook and taking to an easel and extended palette and travel to paint in open air. Of course here in NY we are headed into our cold season so this might have to wait until spring.
Below is a sample of some of my favorite studies from the summer.
