Working plein air for a longer session has its challenges. I forgot bug repellent and anyway, how do you stop the ants from crawling up your leg. I had some bug blood in the drawing from bugs that got stuck on the oil pastel surface. But all in all, as with drawing outside, painting outside has its charms. I love being out doors hearing all the sounds of birds and the world in general. Earlier this week I spend a few hours in the forest preserve and it was so peaceful!
Today I start my oil pastel class and I'm very excited. I hope to report on some new techniques and tips very soon.
