For a few days now I have been inspired by a landscape that I passed by on my way to and from the forest. An open field with leftovers from a leek harvest… Whenever I passed it in the evening there was a greenish blue glow over the field that I just had to paint…

Making a makeshift easel…

   
    
   
I went out painting a water-color today on the same location as where I painted a landscape in oils yesterday. The light was very harsh and I soon realised that I couldn’t find a place in the shade. And since I never take an easel to paint my water-colors (which could help you level your work into the shade), I thought I had to hike on and find another location out of the sun. Then I figured, why not try making a makeshift easel from some branches… And so I did, and it worked fantastic, and the easel even turned out to be adjustable… 😊
