Going bigger outdoors

Started a 16x22 outdoors with a new 3 legged easel that attaches to the stretched canvas. Of course, the first thing I painted I wasn't satisfied with so I painted over it in the studio after scraping much of it off. Next time tried a more reasonable size of 11x14 and came out better the first try. Painting four times as large as usual requires some adjustments that I need to do.

Above is the 16x22, now a Captain Cook area scene. 

Below that is the 11x14 at Old Airport where I did my third "cloud scene". Some days the clouds are superb so I just do the sky and ocean and rocks in the foreground.
