I painted this in the passenger seat on a long road-trip from our home in Oregon down to Disneyland last year. I watched out the window until I found a landscape that inspired me and then painted from memory. Fortunately my husband was very good at letting me know when there were bumps coming up or sudden stops!

Watercolor and ink on hand-made paper


I call them "sketches" because of how quickly I create them--usually between 20-60 minutes--and they're nearly always created "en plein air" (outside, on location), using water from the painting's subject, while my kids are playing.
