After a long time a plein air water colour with ink lines of a tea house in a far off wellness hotel. I always have my urban Sketching Utensils with me.
My goodness, it’s really more difficult to draw plein air compared to drawing from a photo.

The tea house is lovely, Gita.  Would love to join you there for a cup of tea.

But, with my bad eye, I am having trouble identifying the whitish figure  on the left by the path.  (The ghost of Frida Kahlo??)

Looks fabulous Gita :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:
For me the most difficult part of plein air is selecting what to draw / paint as the landscape is so big. You have to "zoom in" on a piece of the scene so I sit there wondering what to zoom in on. :D ;D

I agree Gita, but once you get accustomed to it, plein air is ridiculously fun!  :crazy2:    ;D
Also agree with Nolan... so much to see, so I try not to look behind me after I start.... ooooh look over there!   :doh:      :2funny:
Cheers, Val
