June Plein Air

First time out this year with paints.  I tread a fine line between enjoyment and frustration.  I do want to enjoy this but I quite often feel like chucking the canvas during some (most) of the painting.  I keep telling myself that patience is the key here- with each painting a little more experience is acquired so after a few thousand attempts I might start getting a feel for it.

Painting Again

A slow work day so time to bust out another painting.  From a trip to Barcelona a couple of years ago.
I'm looking forward to getting outside and painting in the elements.

Paintings

I'm sneaking in a couple of paintings into my photoblog.  My photography's been somewhat stagnant for the last couple of months so I thought I'd throw in a few recent painting studies.
