oil on gessoed board
This week has been filled with kids activities; going on a school field trip, teaching art to 2nd graders, karate and all that goes into being a mom in between all that. Balancing my love for the kids with my love for art is not an easy task and sometimes one wins over the other:-)
So, after less painting than usual this week I did this little diddy to warm up today. There's something I absolutely love about a light sky, reflecting in water at sunset. It reminds me of the Swedish archipelago! My reference for this was a picture of the parking lot by the Camarillo Art Studios after the rain. I was able to keep it sort of loose, although there were a few places I went back and adjusted...as I get more and more familiar with what I want to achieve with my paintings...I seem to want less and less of that -
Happy painting all!!
