Really wanted to capture the lily pads while in bloom. Found this lovely spot on the Island, West Lake. Did a few studies, but want to continue with various colors and compositions.
Another study on canvas taped to foam board. Painting on different surfaces creates such a different look
I will continue to do more studies. I am waiting for my daughter and the family to arrive. It is 12:19 am, Mike has homemade pizza in the oven. They should be here about 1am.
I do hope everyone is enjoying the summer. It is going by so fast. I look forward to doing more plein air painting once the children return home. That helps me get over sad and lonely feeling once they leave.
