I spent a few hours plein air painting with the Central Florida Watercolor Society. We were at Lake Lily Park in Maitland, Florida.
As usual I got to the park and was immediately overwhelmed with all the choices of where to set up and draw or paint. So, I practiced what I preach! I found one 10 x 10 square foot area and sketched everything I could see.
I did not know what some things were, but I sketched them anyway. With some notes written on the side I can research these items to find out more about them.
You can practice this at home, too! Find a 3 x 3 or 10 x 10 square foot area in your yard, neighborhood or even inside your own home and sketch the things you find in just that area.
