First plein air of the year!
Well, sort of. I packed up my pan pastels and sat in the car at the beach and painted the snow covered dunes.
I was wondering how I would like using the pan pastels out of the studio, how they would travel, ease of use etc. I loved using them working directly from nature. This piece was done using the drawing set, with only the addition of the light blue, and just a few touches of ocher and orange/yellow from the landscape set.
Someone must have invented a plein air carry case or travel bag for these already, so I will be searching the internet looking for a safe compact way to take these outdoors with me in the future. I'll let you know what I find.
