Cooling Off at Eagle Lake

With the temperatures returning to over 100F with matching humidity, I thought I'd post another landscape/waterscape from the Colorful Landscape class on wetcanvas. My intention here was to create a cool, quiet mood -

Our class is almost over and it has been very informative and fun, well-paced and filled with new ideas to try and incorporate into my everyday paintings. THANK YOU Virgil and participants!

Today is more readying for classes that will start in about three weeks. New programs, new lectures, orders to place and more -- another semester begins!

Stay cool today!

Ah this does make me feel cooler -- the monochromatic makes it not only cool but quiet and serene -- just like we'd feel with a 70 degree day about now!

We had one day of 86 and that was our break. The rest of this week is back into the heatwave so it's nice to see and feel the coolness if only in your lovely painting.

Big hugs,

I love the purples. What a lovely, peaceful, cool scene.
