sunset on may 1st
Early morning is my favorite time to plein air paint. It's a way of starting my day off right. Today I slept in, something I do about once a year. Thus, I was out at the lake at sunset. Nice to have a change. Sunset is QUICK. The watercolor underpainting recorded my information so I was able to paint as it became dark. I am using a piece of paper my friend Donna Timms gave me to try. She prepares her own on a high rag paper. It was really nice with a little tooth. Donna is a wonderful artist who creates soft, sensitive pastels. She prefers not to have a blog so I can't share her work. Thanks for the paper Donna!
