Yesterday morning I joined Gwen’s class for painting “en plein air” as the French say. There is nothing like this experience. This is only the third time I’ve actually painted in the open air, just to explain why this looks more amateur than some of my other work. In spite of it’s flaws, I was still happy with this spontaneous sketch. I used pen and watercolour wash, and I think I like that combination and plan to use it more often.
Update (March 20th, 2011): I entered this in the Qenos art show, which is an annual competition held by Hobson’s Bay Arts Society. It won 1st prize in watercolour, and also sold. Well, goes to show you, that a little painting, done in just a short time can still kick ass, lol. :)
