Painting outside again

Yesterday we were painting en plein air. It’s a nice location: country estate Schaep en Burgh. I had gouache paint with me and some watercolor pencils.  The building is in reality  out of sight, but I thought it was nicer to place it here, instead of more trees.

Gouache in The Wild

To keep myself inspired to draw/paint during the summer holidays I downloaded a great tutorial on using gouache en plein air from and with James Gurney. I happen to have 2 books by him that I recently consulted, so it was a nice surprise to find his vid(s) and a fun blog btw:

Here’s an impression of his tutorial “Gouache in The Wild”
