I was in Sparks Lake with a group of painters on a holiday weekend. You need to come prepared on such a warm day – and so I was. I had an umbrella set up to help me keep cool but what I was really after was to have my pastel box in the same lighting situation as my painting surface.

Here’s a peek into my day. Although painting outdoors is challenging, it’s well worth the effort! My hat is in the way for part of this! Sorry! It wasn’t filmed as a lesson, more of a taste of my day while on location!

With Warmest Regards,
