2nd plein air outing in Beloeil

Last weekend in Beloeil, I had a chance to go paint with fantastic artists like last year. We had great weather. Here are some pictures of my effort. 
Watercolor I did in the morning. My first since a long time. 
Spent a long time unwrapping the tiny wc blocks. Lol
Behind the church in vieux Beloeil. Tried a sight size technique. Close enough. Hehe
L'eglise vieux Beloeil 9x12 oil
Old houses. Vieux Beloeil

And I finally gave George Dedoyard's portrait to him. :)

Do I know how to paint?

Rabbit sketch 6x8 oil

Everytime I paint, there is always a time or a moment where I struggle. Whether its the drawing, colors or tones not looking right. I always turn back to a quote by Edgar Degas, "Painting is easy when you don't know how, but very difficult when you do. "
