25th Annual Shades of Summer Art Show and Sale

Yesterday's rain has certainly cooled things down with our high today being 71F (21.7C). It is a pleasant change and brought more people out to view our show.

Today I worked on a couple of small paintings that I had started a couple of years ago.

For the first one (see post on 17 March 2013) using various greens made from Antwerp blue, French ultramarine blue, raw sienna, new gamboge and burnt sienna. I gave a little more definition to the background trees.

Next using the same colours I started adding some grasses and growies before I set it aside to dry and decide what animals I will put into the foreground.

The afternoon brought I drew in where I would place the trees in the second painting that had been called Blue Sky E (see post on 07 July 2012).

I will post each of these paintings again once they have been completed.
