Rainy Day Road
I carried a reference photo with me of such a scene (hunch?) and so during the morning of our get together, I painted this view. Wisps of fog were evident in my drive as well, so I thought the painting fit the morning too well not to paint!
Later in the afternoon, we each returned to some of Karlyns' techniques, and I should be finished with what I started at the meeting this afternoon.
It was a wonderful, wonderful time. A quiet, well-lit artspace, good company, good food, shared experiences -- what a restive, restorative time in this season of frenetic hurrying. I can't wait to get together again!
BTW, did you notice the full moon last night? It came up over the horizon like an enormous pale yellow wafer that stopped me in my tracks!!! AMAZING!
Today, my plein air group meets back at our beloved goat farm, Elodie Farms, for a holiday lunch and show and tell of our artwork .... then back home to hit the wrapping and chores!
Temps have plummeted and we're in the 20s .. so I don't see painting outdoors today -- my fingers and toes get numb if temps fall below 50F!
Stay warm everyone!
