First plein air day of 2013. Been cold, wet and windy almost daily since Nov last year. Got a break in the weather so I headed out. Took my acrylic set up. First acrylic sketches since last summer. Did three quick sketches in total time of about 2 hours. Really a challenge as temperature still only about 6C so paint was not drying - I like my acrylics to dry fast. All 11x14 on canvas mounted on door skin with warm colour under painting done in advance.
Sketches are nothing to brag about - but might be worth putting time in on two of them. Right back to last years constant mistake - forgetting to allow for brightness of working outside (paintings too dark when viewed in normal room light).
But it felt SO GOOD to be outside again!
