Plein Air Watercolor Painting

A friend of mine, Patti, invited me over a week or two ago to paint with her, since she is also an artist and has Fridays off.  We decided to paint in her backyard, en plein air, painting the outside of her studio.  I brought my travel watercolor kit along and had a very enjoyable day, sitting outside for a couple of hours on a breathtaking Southern California fall day.  I hope we can do it again sometime—beautiful weather keeps coming and I need more practice painting en plein air, which is difficult!
