These (25th, 26th and 27th plein airs) are just 1-hour pochades and nothing special, but I so enjoyed doing them! I'm inspired by the beautiful work I see here and hope that by the time I hit 100 plein airs some of mine will be like that too.
Oil pastels are a good medium for plein air sketches; portable, light, no need for brushes or solvents. The down side is that it's difficult to put vibrant, light colors on top of darker or duller colors, and the result can look pasty. In studio I can plan and control that better.
first one's 5x7
8x10 on mattboard
8x10 on Canson I think this was a bit more than an hour. There was some pale sun when I started but the cloud cover got thicker as I worked.
Thank you for looking. Advice and comments are welcome.
