I got together with some of my art pals today and we painted a model in our host's back yard. The pretty model was in the shade ....and we were in the sun. I forgot my new (slightly broken) umbrella at home---and I was wishing I had it (even with it's busted spoke)......nevertheless, I had a great time. Despite the challenges, I'm confident that I captured some of the sunny/shady flavor of the scene. It was a super afternoon!
