Inktense: Plein Air

One of the things I love about my DIY plein air kit with Derwent Inktense ink blocks is that it gives me the ability to paint something even when I have only 10 minutes. Setup takes less than 30 seconds, and I need only about 45 seconds to pack it all away. As long as I can still sprint to the bus, I’m good to go.

All of these paintings were done onsite. They took anywhere from 8 to 45 minutes to paint. Some got a few touch-ups after the fact. Hey, the bus was leaving; what can I say?

The images are grouped by trip, in roughly reverse chronological order, so the most recent trip’s paintings are on top.
