(I'm really behind. lol)
So, yesterday, I painted plein air for the very first time! I was a bit nervous thinking about doing it, because I imagined people staring at my work while I was doing so, and I'm not good enough.
But when BSP and I got there, we found a bench a bit out of the way, with this nice view of Ashbridges Bay, and I started working and got so into it, that I was only aware one time of a someone watching me. He smiled at me encouragingly, and that was it.
So it turned out to not be nerve-wracking at all. It was a BEAUTIFUL day, warm and sunny with a lovely breeze - BSP sat beside me and read, and we occasionally talked about what was going on around us (there were in fact, tonnes of people around, but I decided not to put them in my painting); and I had a really lovely time!
I also did a painting for "Day 26" which was a really nice drawing and I TOTALLY wrecked it with my painting. But I had some learnings. :)
Anyway - tomorrow I'll post my Day 31 painting, which I've really been working on all week (over three evenings) and then that will be it for World Watercolor Month. \
See you tommorrow!
