Virgil has kindly agreed to continue his exceptional class on colorful landscapes several more weeks - and this is a painting done for for that class. It's from a photograph of Virgil's from the Maine, USA coast. The photograph was a clear, sunshiney day, and I worked to change the mood, color and elements for a colorful foggy interpretation.

It's back to the work week and we're expecting temperatures a bit coolor than last. I suppose temps in the 90s will feel like a cool spell after heat and humidity over 100F! LOL

Have a great day!

Beautiful colors Lin. Less than a week before my grandchildren move. I will be looking forward to studying these techniques. Thank you for sharing.

Ooh I LOVE the colors and the shapes and texture of the rocks and the misty look overall especially with the trees in the background. How like Maine on a cool misty morning you have made it. BEEUTEAFUL!!

It is still so hot and humid here but supposed to be less humid tomorrow.

Stay cool and hydrated.
