My current practice: plein air watercolor

I made a number of watercolors in Maine this summer. I really enjoyed the immediacy of the medium and the ease of clean up.  I am trying to create more watercolors from views around my neighborhood. I’m attempting to paint plein air for a majority of the work and then use photos for refinement/reference.  Working in front of the subject gives the work a freshness that sets it apart from work done entirely from photographs.IMG_1752IMG_1756IMG_1732IMG_1030portland harbor2
