Last week I had the fortunate opportunity to plein air paint with some Walt Disney Imagineers in Italy, at Epcot. We arrived at sun up to have just shy of a couple of hours to paint. Instead of working in my sketch book I thought I would give the plein air easel a go and work on piece of paper. I don't know why but when I'm working in the sketch book I'm looser and don't focus on the details as much. I need to start applying that same mentality to the piece of paper! Maybe I should work smaller to have the same size surface as my sketchbook and I won't have the urge to be as detailed.
It was a glorious day and it's so magical being in the park before the guests arrive!
Next time I'm going to force myself to be quicker with the drawing/sketch so there is more time for painting.
