Susan Abbott - sketching and painting plein air

I caught up with this post The Travel Bug by Susan Abbott on her Painting Notes blog.

You can see her recent watercolour sketches of Paris on her blog A Painting Year and on her website (see below) - plus her plein air oil paintings. What I really like about her watercolour sketches and paintings is how she has a very consistent and recognisable colour palette and the way in which she keeps all her colours fresh and never muddy!


Plein Air Watercolours by Susan Abbott


For those planning plein air painting this summer check out her blog posts about painting plein air which she wrote last summer:
  • Plein Air 101 - provides a number of tips for effective working plein air
  • Plein Air 102 - covers her kit for watercolour and oil painting plein air

Wow! Thanks for sharing this Katherine. Her colours are indeed very fresh and unmuddied. I wouldn't mind buying a book on these sketches if she had one. Pleased you shared with us. Thanks once again.
