Sunrise by Stephen's House

about 8x 13 pastel on watercolor underpainting, uart paper
Tomorrow is the Kensington Plein Air Paint Out. so I went scoping out a new place to paint. I have been eying the light in this park each morning as the sun rises, so this was my choice (and maybe tomorrow's choice.) The only snafu is that it is a dog walker's paradise and as any painter knows dogs are wonderful, but unpredictable. Just one moment of excitement can knock over your easel and destroy hundreds of dollars of pastels. Yipes!!!!!
The roof of Stephen's house, a lovely, hundred plus year old house was catching the light of the rising sun beautifully. oooooooooooh!

Next Thursday, Sept. 10th. I'd like to skip the drive and just be there. I'm really going to try and post something everyday we're there. Ummmm, sounds like to much pressure. We'll see what happens.

I'm looking at your post again, beautiful mix of colors and blends. I really admire your plein air pieces.
Later bud,
