My daughter and I paint out together, as often as we can. Lately we've been going to Dinosaur World in Polk County, Florida. It is a dinosaur theme park with over 150 life sized dinosaurs in set outside in a natural landscape.
My daughter Leela Siragusa, is professional 3D artist working in environments, specifically for video game art.
This Saltasaurus Dinosaur Family was painted en plein air with Koi watercolors on Montval Watercolor cold press 5.5"X 8.5" by me, Aleada Siragusa
Here I am painting
This is a Saltasurus Leela drew, with pen and ink with an emphasis on the waterfall.
Leela's drawings all were done in ink on Strathmore Sketch paper 3.5"X5"
Here is a photo of Leela drawing.
This dinosaur was drawn by Leela using ink, pastels, and watercolor.
Here is another watercolor I painted on an Arches watercolor block, cold pressed 7"X10"
Leela looked at the opposite side of the path where these small dinosaurs were lurking.
Here is a photo of us both working together at Dinosaur World.

Here is a link to Dinosaur World;
there are 3 different parks in the USA.
I would also like to suggest: Gurney Journey
