En Plein Air

My sister, granddaughter, and I had a great day!  We headed out, early this morning, for gorgeous McDowell Creek Park, and we were the first people to arrive!  Not for long, however, because it's a pretty busy little park.  There were picnic tables by the river, so we set up, and started painting right away.   My sister is just learning how to paint, and she did a great job!  My granddaughter has been painting with me for some time now, so she finished three paintings.  I decided to give watercolor a try because it's easier to travel with, and I've wanted to learn how to paint with watercolor.  I think I started to get the hang of it, and it was fun. I'll be doing more of it, hopefully, at the beach soon!  We all think it would be fun to paint the ocean, and eat clam chowder!

Deb - this looks like you had a wonderful day. Hope you took a picnic too. Anxious to see your watercolors. I am sure they will be lovely. That granddaughter of yours looks so sweet - such fun!
