En Plein Air…..around town


This picture just represents SUMMER to me!!! Plus I bought 4 more bowls from anthropologie this month.


And this summer (for whatever reason) I decided it was time to try watercoloring on the spot…as I see it and with time restraints.  Above is a cute storefront in my town.


At the lab…..


At the mall, by the XBox One display.


At the house.


Out the back door.  Too funny, I can see that I made those tree house posts on the same level, which if I were paying attention to perspective I should’ve noticed!


At the mall in very hot weather.  I like it when I can go immediately to watercolor and not mess around with drawing in graphite first.


Speed painting at the mall…that same day.


A popular waterpark in my area.  These kids just refuse to sit still!!!  If I did this more often it would definitely help me capture people on paper better.


And my Art Supplies!!  Some of my favorite pictures are when artists draw their art supplies.

I LOVE the new direction you're going. These watercolor drawings are wonderful!!! Please, keep it up, I enjoy seeing them. En Plein Air sounds quite official (meaning it's here to stay).

About Me

My photo
By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
