A small watercolor kit is so easy to take anywhere, anytime. I can paint a little scene in 30 min. or so from a chair or sitting on towel. It helps to keep my "eye" trained to seeing the landscape as an artist. I can always use these little watercolors as a springboard from which to do an oil or pastel painting in the studio.
Welcome to my art blog! This is where I share my explorations and learning experiences in pastel, watercolor and oil painting. I have had this blog for about six or more years. I am currently entering many national and regional juried art shows. I have a website and sell my work from there as well. I started a group called Reno Tahoe Plein Air Painters a year ago and it has grown to about 40 active painters! Each year brings new challenges and exciting opportunities. I have made many friends among other art bloggers and enjoy visiting their blogs. I hope you enjoy your visit here, and click on the links to my website and the plein air painters to see more!
