I usually work in our gallery on Sundays but took yesterday off. I wanted to savour it and anticipated an all day outdoor painting excursion.
Of course the weather did not exactly cooperate -the sun was taking a holiday and rain was forecast. I decided to go out anyway and it did rain intermittently but I just waited it out and resumed work when it cleared. It was worth it because I could really observe and become engaged with the sky's changing light and atmospheric effect on the land.
August (between), Niagara escarpment, plein air, oil/cold wax on canvas, 11x14in, 2012, available
This is the first canvas of the day and I will post the others later.
