Swing Under Cedar Tree

Swing Under Cedar Tree, 5.5x9" watercolor, plein air, ©Diane Mannion

Day 9 of 30 Paintings in 30 Days

Painted with the Englewood Plein Air Artists at Artist Acres, a private, former Englewood artist's retreat.  Wrote about the history of the place in the post during the paintout last season.  Click here to read it.
My setup on a cool morning in the shade.  Rigged my James Coulter easel for watercolor.  Have a plastic mixing pan in the middle... on top of my oils which are under plastic wrap.  Worked well!
First stage, painted on a watercolor block.  Lowered the back leg of the tripod to adjust the tilt.
