Suburban Hydrangea

Plein air is painting on location, from life.  Sometimes, those places are indoors, but always the experience of the day seeps into the painting. These hydrangea were first inked with a Pitt pen, then I washed in the color with my watercolor confection pans.  This is one of my favorite flowers in one of my favorite journals!  The media float over the heavy texture, and water sits on top allowing the paint to mingle and move.  One day soon I will do a flip through video showing all the pages of this journal. I can see so much improvement from the first page to the last.  Painting number 1615 in 1615 days.
