Painting On Location

Painting on location, or plein air, can be as uncomfortable as one can imagine. When I painted this charming scene on the River Deben in southern England, I was sick as a dog with extreme hay fever, and could barely see, let alone hold my brush. A nice group of water color painters allowed me to join them, and made sure that I didn’t fall into the river. All these years later, it’s nice to have the painting so I can see what I can’t recall about that afternoon.
