sunrise/ plein air study
I knew I wanted to study the color more since I didn't seem to be getting it. So I returned to the field site at twilight (Thursday morning) and waited for the sun to rise just above the horizon. Then, early Friday morning I went back to the studio to do another painting but this time by memory...of course I always had the reference available this time. I will post that later.
I am writing this late Friday evening/early Saturday morning. We are in our first major snowstorm (in years) and I am scheduled to leave from the airport this morning. Keep in mind that in Washington DC 4 inches of snow closes down the city and we are expecting 1-2 feet! Everyone will go insane! I hope to be off to visit my Daddio and his wife Mae in California. My whole family goes. It's a fun time. I love spending time with everyone... but of course I will paint. It is beautiful out there. If the airport shuts down you will be seeing a snow painting.
