Day #1, finishing the third attempt along the dock where we later rented a canoe
5" x 10" acrylic on board
Back at our campsite I wanted to touch up a few places, I think this photo makes me look like a really rugged painter...ha!
The next day we found a very quiet place where my feet were practically in the river...I think I was more relaxed knowing no one was going to be peeking over my shoulder, Bob snoozed with a book in the shade nearby

Two final thoughts: #1, acrylic is much too difficult to handle outdoors, it dries almost before you can get your brush in it, as much as I like not carrying solvents with me I think I will return to oils plein air. #2 - I know several of you are worrying about the orange cord grasses and the turquoise brush; hmmmm, I take licence outdoors, it is more a feeling-color than a replicated-color. I get a little tired painting muddy greens and browns in the dead of winter....enjoy.
