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 time is super-limited! 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. Some got a few touch-ups after the fact. (Hey, the bus was leaving; what can I say?)

UPDATE: Thanks so much to everyone who made a purchase during the “Help Mark Move the Studio” Sale! The sale is now over. This was a huge help, and a wonderful way to connect with so many of you. Thank you!

The sale prices have now expired. I’ll be repricing the site soon.
