Day 7 of en plein air painting brought a challenge. We decided to go out of town hiking, so the only way to keep up the daily painting was to pack up the watercolours for a quick paint post hike.

New Watercolour Painting of Red Deer

I have been trying for weeks to get out to paint the fall leaves, however life has a way of getting very busy and painting is the last thing on the “to do” list.

Yesterday I finally squeezed in a quick 20  minute paint down at McKenzie Trails in Red Deer, Alberta (Canada). I haven’t done watercolours in forever, but it seemed like the right choice for a quick paint. There is something to be said for working fast, the work is freer and less contrived, plus it allows one to be just a little more abstract.
