The Plein Air Painter

The Plein Air Painter

Watercolor on Arches 300-lb CP paper
10.75" x 14.25" (27 x 36 cm)

I've had the pencil drawing for this painting on watercolor paper since 2011.  I ran across it again the other day and decided to finish the painting.  This painting is based on a photograph I took while I was out painting with the Missouri Plein Air Painters Association (MOPAPA) in July of 2011.  The base drawing for this piece is based on a value sketch I made from the photo.
