Thanks, Brenda!

Thank you for your comment, Donald! And you may very well be right. Personally, I find I still get too hung up on details painting en plein air, but that's just me. Same with photos. Although, even when painting without photo reference, or outside, I guess it would be a little more accurate to say it's a mix of memory and imagination. Either way, it can be fun, and occasionally turn out okay - depending on what you're going for. There are a few dedicated plein air painters in this neck of the woods, but watercolor can be interesting in the -15 to -30 degree C. range, and just uncomfortable at 0 to -15 degrees C. But that's only Oct.,Nov. through March or April. There is actually a short window of time before black fly and mosquito season (mid-May through July or August, depending on how wet a summer we get) and again in the fall where it is possible to paint outside without having to pick bugs out of your paint, or freeze your hands off. I find I'm not so dedicated now that I'm on blood-thinners! But I do thank you for the suggestion!

I like the triptych also. Very nicely done. But I disagree about painting out of your head. I recommend the opposite, by going outdoors and painting on location. Try that and then do one out of your head, or from memory.

Hi Nancy, thanks! I should do another one something like this one of these days. I think it helps to have no reference photo, and just paint from my imagination (notice I didn't say 'paint out of my head'! LOL!)

Love all 3 of these Lynn - wish I could learn to paint loose like this. Love the colors!

Thank you Warren! They were a lot of fun, and a bit looser than I usually paint.

Nice all 3.
