Plein-air Efforts of the Day ...

'Plein-air Trek!'
Day 1 of 'Plein-air Trek'!
Phase #1. 'Plein-air Trek'
18" x 30". Oil on Birch panel. 2013.
Day 2 of 'Plein-air Trek'!

Phase #2. 'Plein-air Trek'
18" x 30". Oil on Birch panel. 2013.
For the past several months while I would take my morning walk
or afternoon bike ride, I would pass by a number of cute little houses.
And I've been telling myself for all these months .....
 'Oh, I've got to paint that some day!'
I recently got a new Jullian umbrella to make the plein-air experience
a little more enjoyable by being shaded from the Sun
and also keep the light even on the painting itself.
And I also got new hybrid tires for my Trek 4100 MTB!!
For the past few days I've been retro-fitting the plein-air gear to the bike
and also giving it a few test/trial runs before actually senting out.
Yesterday, was the day to try riding the bike with the plein-air gear
and actually setting up on-site and getting familiar/comfy with the process.
I will admit I was a touch nervous at first, but the nerves soon
faded away as I pedalled closer to my intended painting spot.
This piece 'Plein-air Trek' has a few things it needs to be completed
 which can be easily be done in the comfort of the quiet studio!
Please stay tuned for more what's new from the studio!
Cheers, ~ Polly ~

Lovely work, Poly.
You are fortunate to have nice subjects for plein air not far from home.

Hey there jeronimus!

Thank you so much for your comment and compliment!

The town I live in has often been called 'ugly', but the thing is it has a few little gems which practically go unnoticed most of the time. When these little gems are cast in the right light that's when they really shine!
