Spring is long gone and we’re into full blown summer. It’s hot! Here’s a day about two weeks ago, when the last of the snow was a welcome sight on a hot walk. Snow bath!
Someone found time to relax 🙂
I sat down to paint and was just getting into it when the Yorkie wanted to sit behind me. It took some arranging to pack a folding chair with pillows and blankets so he wouldn’t fall through, but finally we got settled (semi-comfortably). I finished my painting all too quickly and realized I had either to disturb the Yorkie (not really an option) or find something to paint right where I was sitting. Hence the paint brushes. Here are my three Princetons and the 1″ Escoda flat.
I like to greyscale my paintings to see if I have the values right. Looks good. I find the most difficult thing about painting brushes is the symmetry of the handle. It is really difficult to get the swelling and tapering the same on each side!
What colour are shadows on snow on a sunny day? BLUE!! 🙂
