En Plein Air: 8/26/2014

I don't normally go out midday but I invited the local art guild to come out and have fun so I was out hours later than normal.  The difference is intensity of the colors and shadows.  And heat.  I'm really looking forward to cooler fall weather. 

Sennelier's watercolors on 140# Arches cotton paper. 
Work still in progress on this one.  I'm not quite happy with it yet.   

From Wikipedia: En plein air (French pronunciation: ​[ɑ̃ plɛn ɛʁ]) is a French expression which means "in the open air" and is particularly used to describe the act of painting outdoors.
