Our Garden


8 x 11 inches, watercolor, 2010.

This month's WNW challenge was to paint "plein aire" - out in the open. I went and sat out in my garden, as it was a lovely warm spring morning. This really was a challenge for me, and really took me out of my comfort zone. It took me a while to get going and I ended up with a painting in a much looser style than I usually work in.
