Back to plein air

Because of mural works and a disastrous weather in April and May , I had no chance to paint outdoors yet. At last I have more time and the sun is back. For this special occasion I ride my bike one hour away from the city, along the shore of a quiet lake. I sat for my first painting (tired!) , using the feet of my box to hold my umbrella.

For the second painting my bike is the easel. It's something I like to do in the city because it allows me to be ready to paint (or leave! )  in 2 mn . I can even have a back look of the painting in the mirror of the bike and the height is perfect. Just love my easel bike, I wish it would take me around the world!

Two little paintings were enough before riding back home, a good day to try all the little improvements I made to my outdoor painting equipment, ready for summer!
