This was a demo from my Painting Safari on Friday. It was the OPPOSITE of hazy, hot and humid, and for that I was grateful, but no one was feeling intrepid, so we had the session at my studio and worked from photos. I asked people to try to select from my photos an image that had close values, as much like the day we were experiencing. This image from a past Summer did the trick. I really, really like the way it came out, and truthfully, I've painted those 'lozenge' suns many times before and this time I got it.
I'm sorry for those of your who like hot weather, but I'm as happy as the clams here in Maine on my painting trip! To connect to the internet I have to drive for 1/2 hour - for a public wi-fi, so there probably won't be many posts this week, and I apologize.
Please send Paco your good thoughts as he is on 'vacation' with my son, Conor in Boston. As you can see above, he adores Conor. But he still worries about whether his Mom will come home....Pin It
