Shades of Summer Art Show

Today is the first half day at our show. In the morning the show is visited by some of the people either before and/or after attending the church service. Then the doors open at 12:30pm to the general public.

With the heat and humidity today along with it being the end of the weekend and the cottagers heading home we did not have large crowds, but a number did come out to see the show.

Since I had these two paintings pulled out yesterday of rushing water I thought I would continue working on them. In this case neither the one of Burleigh Falls (see post on 22 July 2013) nor the one of the waterfall (see post on 29 July 2013) had any sky showing in the painting.

Burleigh Falls 13

I put in the under paint on the rocks using various glazes of burnt sienna, raw sienna, alizarin crimson and French ultramarine blue.

I will post each of these paintings at a later date as more work on them has been completed.

White Water 1

Small items were sold from Diane Collins, JoAnne Connell Northey and Barbara McGregor.

Hopefully some of you will make it out to see the show.
