Plein-Airpril: My Month of Roadside Paintings

Roadside Gouache Paintings
These are a few paintings of Akita, Japan. My favorite time of day is going outside after work, just before sunset. I've been exploring the new city and trying to capture some of its rural magic through these plein air sketches.

Lakeside

This one is my favorite. My sister came over to visit and we spent an afternoon painting this view in the mountains. It was a good day!
