Plein Air With My Bike

Loaded up my bike and went around doing some scouting and painting. I have been able to get my oils and watercolors all in the same backpack, along with the tripod and everything I need. Still, working on streamlining it further and making it quicker and easier to transport and set up.

This is my trusty steed, a 1993 GT Talera. Outfitted with a simple rear rack, my Kelty backpack, and an assortment of bungee cords.


I started with this one of my backyard and the butterfly bushes, daylilies, and crepe myrtle.

From there I rode down to the riverfront and our new park. I picked this view of the bridge, the RiverPark Center, and the Veterans Memorial.

Being it was a pretty hot day in the 90's with 100% humidity, I rode over to a coffee house and had me a couple of cold drinks. Then set up and painted this view in watercolor.

Then the next morning I headed out and did a couple more. I rode all total about 30 miles on this day, only painting two, but scouted out several potential spots I'd like to go back to.

This was a little farther on down the road and setup a watercolor.
