two sketches from a visit to Maryhill Museum in WA
It was a really pretty day and I did two small sketches in oil. It is pretty overwhelming out there sometimes..it is hard to choose what to paint! I've painted this gorge view a couple of times now..and always at practically noon. It's a tall order. I remembered that one year Bonnie White painted some peacocks on the Maryhill grounds and today one stood still for me long enough for me to dash something out. It was a really perfect day for painting outdoors. I saw some of my painting friends out there and hope to be able to see some paintings that they did too.
both sketches oil on 5 x 7 canvas panel
