Plein Air Painting, Kind of.

The view from my kitchen window. My previous apartment. I got to sit by the heater drinking beer, and working on the laptop. So I don't know if this counts as plein air exactly. I believe this is the first building, or enviroment I've painted from reference.

A couple weeks ago I took a walk around the neighbourhood looking for interesting places. Came across this alley between 4 or 5 buildings, did a quick sketch on location and finnished it on the computer at home.
I only regret not being able to capture all the grit and details in the original sketch.

 note: the tree is a sillouhette image grabbed from google images, not sure who made it.
