The first morning it poured rain but I stood out there painting under two umbrellas trying to get this yellow house. I quit after getting the underpainting and getting soaked in the process.
Bungalow (Fisherman's Cottage)
After stripping off my wet shoes and socks and drying them by blasting the heater in the truck, the rain let up a bit but the skies stayed gray the remainder on the morning. So I managed to find shelter in a boathouse and paint the yellow canopy of the local restaurant.
Rained Out SOLD
8x10I struggled on this one and went back to finish it on the last day.
After lunch the sun came out and the humidity vanished. The third painting of the day was my favorite. A row of multi-flora roses that cried out to be painted.
Show Stopper SOLD
It took two after noons to complete this one.
The last painting of the first day was going to be a sunset of course, but...
I had an hour before the sun was setting, so I turned around and painted this scene while I waited.
Finally the last painting of the first day
But the night wasn't over. I drove home, cleaned up (myself and my brushes) and got ready to do it again in the morning.
