Summer Sketches

Psychic tent in Port Townsend, Washington.

When the weather is nice I try to get outside and find something to paint with my watercolor travel set. I made a couple paintings this summer while road-tripping through Oregon and Washington and a few more around where I live. I pack a small travel stool with me on each of these trips and I usually spend a couple of hours on each one.

I’m always scouting out new things to draw in my area. There are quite a few places I have my eye on. I’m not hardcore enough to paint outside in the winter, so I’ll have to wait until next year to get to those. You can see some of my other plein air paintings here and here.
