Plein air strikes again...

Particularly nice plein air today, perfect weather, and an old friend not seen for years showed up and joined us, so I had great company while I painted.  
 

 
We sat on a bench at the side of the canal, so one painting is the view straight across the water.  With this one I painted then drew into it,  and one of the bridge further down the canal,left of where I was sitting. September yellow daisy like flowers have now joined the golden rod, and the leaves are thinning a bit now.


And here I drew then painted over it.


Unusual for me to work in company at all, so this was a new departure. She was breaking out her charcoal, first time in ages, so she had an adventure, too.  And we caught up on many years of our lives since we last met, which was way back when we rented studios in the same building.

Many interruptions from friendly bicyclers, walkers, joggers, runners, too.

I would love to be able to spend time interrupting you. Lovely watercolours.
