Plein air

About two months ago (in the dead of winter) I decided to try my hand at plein air painting. My usual style demands many hours of paint time and I didn't want to spend all day at this. So I decided to do some line and wash paintings. I did four paintings but only one turned out well enough to post. (1 in 4 is about my ratio of good painting to bad, even when I spend hours upon hours on them) I really enjoyed getting out of my studio to work in a new style, it was very refreshing. I should do it again.
