I’ve been out a few more times with my gouaches to do plein air landscape studies. It’s been fun because I’ve been able to go on my new bike. The first one I’ve ever had. It’s got a makeshift but perfect basket on the back that will fit my stadium seat and my daypack with the art gear in it. I’ve enjoyed riding out of town to places I can paint. Getting out of town and into the countryside is so easy here in this town of 700, so I’m taking advantage of that while I’m here. I’m still struggling to find the right brushes, but mostly I’m pleased with the painting I’m doing. I’ve also included a snapshot of me working out on the trail, so you can see the small amount of gear needed for traveling with gouache. The stadium seat is optional but comfortable.
