I had played with setting up an easel and a box of pastels outdoors before, but this June signed up for a workshop with Kim Casebeer. We set up in the Dundee Hills at the studio of another pastel artist with beautiful views in every direction. It was very challenging! I did just one painting then gave up on it for this time, next time I'll be a little more ready for it. In the meantime I've set up closer to home a few times, and will continue to do that.
