Summer Time Is "Plein Air" Painting Time

Then followed that beautiful season... Summer....

Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape
lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.
     -- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Summer is here and that means spending time outdoors, soaking up the sun, and enjoying all that mother nature has to offer.  
I am not a "plein air" painter, my highly detailed watercolor paintings are more suitable to painting indoors in the studio, where I have some control over my surroundings.  
Having said that, I am going to try and paint more outdoors this summer.  I will paint small practise sketches of items etc.  and see where it takes me.  
I'm off to play for the weekend........have a great week,
          Happy Canada Day!
Artfully Yours,
