Last night after work I went over to Big 5, a sporting outfit store
and found my ARTIST'S CHAIR.
It's by Coleman, and is a camp chair with a side tray that includes a hole for a water cup, room
for paints, brushes, pens, pencils, etc. even an eraser!
It folds up and has handles for carrying it too.
This morning I headed out a whole five miles from home to a small Regional Park
called Pena Adobe.
I parked in the lot and walked several yards to this spot where I set up my chair and supplies
it was really picture perfect! A light blue sky, beautiful trees and shadows!
I used a brand new flat water brush. And I drew and painted in my larger 9" X 12" sketchbook with watercolor paper #140.
"Are you drawing?" I said: "I AM!!!" He gave me a huge smile! I felt both encouraged and then a little voice in my head said 'who the heck do you think YOU are?' But I quickly shooed her away!!!
This is the painting
And the best part of it was that I had fun doing it...spent almost two full hours at it...and came away feeling darn proud of myself! So there! Lynn the Plein Air Artist at work!
