Plein Air Pastel Sketches?

For those who like my art, I was introduced to plein air pastel sketches this past week–and by “introduced”, I mean “forced to do it for an assignment because I usually avoid plein air sketching with a passion”.

Outdoor sketching for me usually doesn’t happen, because it’s highly problematic to stand around with your materials, trying to get a good view of a building.  I’ve done it before (the Bronx Bar painting at my store is a plein air), but vermin flying in your face can be a real distraction. I’d rather paint inside.

Oil pastels are a lot faster than guerilla painting, though, so I may try this again during the summer. If I do, you’ll see the work appear at my store.
