Plein Air Postcard #4: Secret Beach

Here is a watercolor sketch I painted at a lovely secluded beach I found. Paint along and enjoy!


I am using the set of 24 koi watercolor box.
The paper is one of the watercolor blocks I made the other day:) Happy Crafting!

  1. Beautiful! Reminds me of the year I spent working/living at the Pittston Farm–on the Penobscot River– up near Rockwood in the North Woods.


  2. Lindsey,thank you so for this wonderful plein air painting video it was wonderful and hope you hgave more like this I just started art journaling and trying to learn how to do WC landscapes on my pages this help so your advice I will take to heart since I am trttrtying to teach myself and making many errors but I keep on trying. I wanted to thank you for your time talent and teachings they have helped and have pushed me forward on my learning.
    Have a wonderful day,


  3. I like this scene. I actually like the one you painted in the video better than the one you did in the field. Wonder why that is? Usually when I do two paintings of the same scene, I tend to like the first one I do better than the second one.


  4. I loved this and all the painting you do. I have a question to ask of you. First of all, I am new, new at this learning process. I want to learn to watercolor and I wanted to know how I can learn to mix colors correctly. I have raised four children and taught myself to sew and a lot of things as they were growing up. I am now a grandma and just want to learn how to paint, obviously I do not want to go out to do so. Part of that is at my age I would be embarrassed at all the mistakes and the other is I have M.S. which makes attending outside events very difficult. So I was hoping you could give me suggestions to learn about colors to mix together correctly. I never let anyone see my work that I sketch in charcoal, I tell my husband that I draw “twigs” my back yard trees. He tells me he can see exactly what I am drawing and can tell what I am drawing. He is so sweet. But I want to paint with watercolors and I bought the Daniel Smith introductory set, do I need anything else, there are only six tubes. Sorry this is so long, and I am afraid this will pop up as my grandson’s site so could you please, please email me??? judi abbey


  5. I don’t get it …. why add the white to get that Titanium Buff mix instead of just diluting the yellow-ochre-light red mix with water?

    I like these plein air paintings and would like to watch you doing the birch tree one in a video.


  6. I learn something new with each painting you do so thank you so much for taking the time to post the videos. Also, thanks for reviewing the Jerry Q paints. I ordered a set on EBay from old_cheap_sam and got free shipping. Also, old_cheap_sam verified that the Jerry Q and the Grace paints are made by the same company
    Grace Art Materials Co. L.L.C, California.


  7. I was excited to find this, because in addition to the cotman compact set I bought this koi set too, they were so affordable, I thought I’d buy both and see what I liked best. And this out in the field type thing was exactly what I had in mind when I bought them!
