En Plein Air (open air) Painting

I have never considered myself a water-colorist, to me that was always my mother’s medium and she still owns the title family water-colorist –so far as I’m concerned. However, since the weather has been lovely as it has been, I have decided to do a series of watercolor paintings painted around Albany En plein air. Early in my teaching, I finally got past the fact I thought I wasn’t good in the medium. As I had to teach other people to use watercolor, I quickly taught myself and have greater comfort in the medium.`As the summer progresses I will probably do a lengthy series of watercolor.

Currently, I am intending to incorporate Eleven Images as a 501c (non-profit) in the very near term, and I also need a passport to begin traveling overseas. So, sales of this series will likely be used towards those purposes. I can ship these, and I accept paypal. though they would probably be most meaningful to someone with ties to the area.

Today, I was in Washington Park, on the west side of the lake there. The images are looking east over the lake. (all images watercolor on paper, 11″ x 14″)

I could sell these as a series (3, make offer), or $30 each.

6/24/16: I returned to Washington Park today to paint a few more images. I think I will begin, next time, moving my easel around the city, and also, perhaps, into Troy and Schenectady. So if you happen to see me out and around, feel welcome to say hello and peek over my shoulder.

Enjoy

    • If you’re interested in the image, no one has bought it yet. Email me at eaton.robertb@gmail.com. If you’re local, I can make arrangements for pick-up, and I can ship if you’re not local. Please tell me in the image which of the three you are interested in. Thanks!
