Summer is on the horizon!
When I first started painting it was a real challenge to be able to see the warm and cool colors in the sky..I think I get it much better than I did four years ago. It was a perfect day today to paint, but I was feeling a little "under the weather".. so I did not leave my house ...I opted instead to paint from my reference photo, reminding myself about getting these temperatures down rapidly. Clouds move so fast and it can drive you a little nutty when you're trying to paint them from life.
The weather is starting to really cooperate..so I am beginning to make my list of where I want to paint this year and also what workshops I want to take. This year is amazing for workshops. So many A-Listers are offering 2 and 3 day workshops right here in our area. Time to get the calendar out and schedule!
