Today was our first plein air outing of the year. It was a cool overcast morning. After highs in the 80s last week, today at 60 degrees with a breeze seemed cold. We met on the grounds of the Pontifical College Josephinum near Worthington Ohio. Because I normally shy away from architectural subjects, I pointed my easel towards an old shed, just across the driveway instead of attempting to paint the grand brick buildings of the college.
I was using my tiny, Judson's 5x7 pocket box pochade. Most of my peers thought it was cute, but SMALL. I was happy with it as I like to work smaller and fast. I don't need a large mixing area for the way I work. Here is the final painting, and some views in process.
