First Attempt at Plein Air

Here is my first attempt at Plein air painting on Saturday. Got my new Guerrialla Pochade box all set up and organized. The setting up actually took longer then the time I spent painting. As you can see from the second pic it didn’t take long for this storm to roll in from nowhere. The sun was shining when i went out the  next thing you know there is thunder and lightning..lol…Thought about staying out if it were not for the lighting and me almost sitting under a tree!
Just a small delay considering we have had pretty good weather this summer and not too many rain days. Hoping to continue where this paining left off. It is the view from my front yard so it is just a matter of walking out the front door. No excuse..lol
Will post a pic when it is finished.

Here is the next project! This is 18×24 which is quite large for me. I really like it so far. Started with an under-painting to become familiar with the values. Really felt comfortable starting out this way and could relax when the white canvas was gone..lol The building itself was left white because i didn’t want to have to try and make it white again later on. Going to pencil in more details as the perspective is proving difficult. Wish me luck!
