World Watercolor Month Day #16, evening

Tonight was the last of six classes with Tony Conner of Bennington VT at the Arts Center of the Capital Region in Troy NY. Tonight we started inside, had a great demo of painting sunsets and then moved outside to do just that. And boy, Mother Nature did not disappoint. It might not have been a technicolor dream of a sunset but it was a fabulous array of clouds and beautifully subtle colors. You could feel the rain approaching but it held off until we were heading to our cars. Poured and lightning for a few miles and then clear enough to enjoy a full moon.

It was a great class again with Tony and I enjoyed my classmates too. I don’t do much urban painting so that was good for me too. I tend to like my buildings without windows – sort of like faceless amish dolls, LOL. Tonight I plopped windows into a painting started last week just to say I could.

This rapidly expanding cloud was too fast for me. I took photos for reference and finally just put in the buildings quick below.

Art is our memory of love. The most an artist can do through their work is say, let me show you what I have seen, what I have loved, and perhaps you will see it and love it too. — Annie Bevan

These were the photos I took outside.
