Night Visitors (and day)


A Little Night Painting

Thursday, More Paint

Wednesday, Good Day for a Take Two

Saunders Waterford Hot Press, still working on it.

Tuesday in February

I had to get out and around this morning – after a quick breakfast I took the long way home but despite the occasional blue patches of sky it was grey and dreary. Took a few photos, meh. I sketched my neighbor’s house trying to get the proportions right. Hard. I did it twice. Then the sun came out a little more and I went looking for SOMETHING to paint. It’s February, all the snow is dingy and things are monotone. Drove as far as Hancock Shaker Village where all the buildings were bright and they have an amazing solar array. I wondered how much they produce and figured the shakers would have approved.

Then I drove home over the roads I’d traveled during my August class in the Berkshires. Took a few photos, meh.

While in Winter…

paint wintery scenes…

Stopping on the side of less today because, well, I think it just looks done or enough. I see I left out some things of the foreground and the mid-background but I’ll look at it again when it’s totally dry.

January Almost Gone

Been a little too cold around here to paint outside much. Even today which touched above freezing was really too cold to just sit somewhere and try to get something done while everything freezes. Today I did get some reference photos and tried one of a scene that I’ve admired for awhile. I’ll need to go back on a sunny morning because it just shines.

This was a recent very cold morning.

And about a week ago, another collection of barns and sheds.
