This painting is another from the Wet Canvas class conducted by Virgil Carter. I thought after yesterday's heat, I'd post something a bit cooler! LOL The goal of this workshop is to learn to paint loosely and more colorfully - and for me, painting buildings has always been a challenge. I am learning, though not yet where I'd like to be with them, to soften those hard edges a bit, and color variation certainly helps.
I sure wish I were at that beach though --that cooling water, even with a hot sun, would be mighty welcome.
We got a bit of a shower last night - nothing much - far less than 1/4" of rain, but we're glad to at least have some moisture return to the baked soil. I've still got my fingers crossed that I will finally put my toes into the Atlantic before long .....
It's a dash back to the office today ...
Stay cool and safe from those thunderstorms! and thank you for continuing to support the Arboretum and the hungry through your votes!
