This is one i did several weeks back in wilmington. the clear fall air made the colors wonderful. the deep blue water, orange brick buildings and the cereleun blue and dusty rose sky were gorgeous as i looked back towards the city to paint.
the day i painted this, i remember almost losing my brand new plein air umbrella i ordered from EasyL. i tied the top part to the tripod like the instructions said to do. a huge gust of wind hit, lifted the umbrella, and it started heading for the river 12 feet below me. lucky i had it tied off or i'd have lost it for sure.
i highly recommend the EasyL umbrella if you like one when you paint. i used to use a beach umbrella with stakes in the ground but this one is way easier to use and can stand up to winds around 15 mph. when a gust hits, instead of it dragging your easel over, the top flies off and is attached (thank goodness) to the easel with an elastic cord. great idea whoever thought of it!
