Did this watercolour today before rain came. You can see rain spots on road!
Had to do 30 mins at home so technically not pure plein air, but 90%.
Its the side view of Norwich Cathedral. Entertained by a pair of peregrine falcons who have hatched 4 chicks on the tower. Mum and and Dad were flying around the spire constantly calling. A big cheer went up so I think they did a mid air swap of food. I missed it.

Thought I'd post something different.
The first image is the pencil drawing. Second image is first wash of watercolour. I will then put another wash on painting and finish with darks and shadows.
This is the Green Dragon Pub at Wymondham (pronounced Windham)


Plein Air Group Norwich today. Painted in London St. Cafe owner liked what we doing and bought out a couple of pots of tea for us. 
Watercolour on Whatman paper. I am using the back of an old stock of Whatman. Its a crime its no longer made!!!
