I had a wonderful time yesterday with a new group of artists, called Toronto Urban Sketchers. (Very much like the Toronto Plein-Air Painters.) Painting outside is a blast and I highly recommend trying it!
I painted this waterfall at the lovely Toronto Botanical Gardens with the Toronto Plein-Air Painters! I'm so happy that I joined this group since it takes all the intimidation out of painting outdoors.
The camera angle of my paintbox always makes it look like I was super far from the subject, but I wasn't really...
Painting on a larger size paper is working out much better than I had thought. I don't know what all the fuss was about, hence the title. Also, I'm not sure why, but I do like flowers on a chair. $120 - 11x14"painting close ups -
It's my blog's birthday! 3 years ago today I started. Thank you to everyone for your inspirational comments and ongoing support. When you paint alone it's hard to know how you're doing so, it's great to hear feedback from your fellow artists and art supporters. Year four... here I come!
This is the second painting I did on Saturday at the Spadina Museum. A fellow plein air artist bought it right on the spot! I plan to go back and paint this greenhouse bigger. Well, 11x14", which is bigger for me!

This little painting kit is just a strong cardboard box with my Winsor Newton palette in it, along with water cup, water spritzer, and a bull dog clip holding a rag. The watercolour block fits inside the lid nicely.
