Plein Air Painter - Aruba Paintings

Watercolors painted on the island of Aruba.
The island is clean, friendly and the climate is wonderful for plein air
painting. There is always a strong breeze, so securing an easel is difficult and because I was painting on a watercolor block, I could paint without one, and position myself comfortably in the shade without a plein air umbrella.

Funny, how people from the same country can stike up a friendship on holidays - we meet Herb Reed (from the Platters) in our hotel bar one afternoon and a few afternoons after that...he really liked a pair of sunglasses my husband was wearing and we gave them to him. Then,we had a running gag, we'd send a different pair of sunglasses backstage, whenever he was in the area, and he'd dedicate a song to us.

Lots of security around, especially in Oranjestad.

All watercolor paintings are 18x24 on D'Arches #140 Hot Press.
