pleinair_greyscaleclouds_jan16Since it’s winter and everything’s grey as it is, lately I’ve been going out to paint with just a few pencils and ink brushes. I think I get to know a landscape better when working in grey scale, I just don’t get as much of it on the page. There’s more leisure time to enjoy where I’m sitting when I’m not mixing paints.

  1. Wish I could do that! I love how you are able to see the undergrowth in the second picture; it really adds to the “natural” feel of the sketch. And, I also agree, the sky is pretty amazing – very dramatic and bold, just like the sky so often is.
