As stated in my last post, I committed myself to painting outdoors at least once a week, so I forced myself to choose something in my backyard. I used an old lunchbox and made it into a pochade box. This week I decided to do a quick mini sketch of my husband reading a book outside. I liked the way the sun shine glistened on his figure–so poetic, right? And, I did add the chair afterwards. I really had good results with painting on canvas paper, so I took the rest of my paper and cut them into smaller pieces for these mini-paintings.
