House on Angel Hill
This was our final painting of the week. Trying to put all the concepts to work. As I said yesterday, I was not feeling the love that day. It was the hottest day of the week and the hottest week of the summer. It was like standing in the furnace with the hot air blowing. I started this, wiped it, started over in a different format. I got it blocked in and by that time had to retreat across the street to the shade. So my perspective was a little different and the light had quickly changed.
But I got kudos from the owner of the house and from the two boys who flew by on their skateboards! What more could ask?
It's always a race for me when I am painting outdoors. All in all, it was a great week. It always is when I can devote that much time to painting and be surrounded by other artists - it's just so energizing.
And wouldn't you know it - this week's weather is wonderfully cool!
Thanks for visiting!
