Art on the Go


Here are some photos from a sketchbook. I drew these in Seaside, Oregon. Painting outside during most of the year in Oregon can be challenging. You never know what the weather is going to throw at you. I like to use a small book, a pencil, tiny watercolor box, and a water brush. I fit it into a small waist pack with a snack. A plastic bag to sit on is a good idea if I remember.

I am getting ready for my new class called Art on the Go at Maude Kerns Art Center. We will be traveling to different locations each week. I am going to be doing a gear up session Saturday May 3, 3-5pm at Oregon Art Supply. I will have have all my outdoor set ups such as French easel and pochade box for oils or acrylics, sketchbooks and my watercolor kit.
