Lovely loose style! Wish I could "plein air" like that!

RoseAnn, I find about 1 in 10 plein air
pieces actually make back to the studio
before I rip them up and use the back side
for color checks and blotting.
Everything has to be perfect for watercolor
to work outside. Compared to other
mediums it has a lot of elements going
against it. Paper dries to fast, paper dries to slow.
It's too cold to think, let alone paint. Bugs and
so on.
