I’ve found my new plein air paradise, namely Kensington a very varied and interesting neighbourhood in Calgary. Lots of street life. I spent yesterday and today doing some plein air painting there. I’m very pleased with the process I used. Get a good composition and then work out a value pattern. I’m also happy with the actual paintings I did. I find it best for me at this point to thing of plein air painting as a time to gather information. If the painting works out that’s always a bonus.
So I definitely got lots of ideas and had a fun and satisfying experience.
