26th Annual Shades of Summer Art Show and Sale

It was a fairly quiet day today with the temperature once again hot 94F (34.4C) and the humidity making it feel like 107F (41.7C) and even though it did cloud over in the afternoon there was still no rain; hopefully tomorrow will bring some of the rain we so badly need.

I worked on this painting that I had started a few years ago (see posts on 10 January 2013 and 05 March 2016) called Morning Reflections 1.

The background deciduous trees were put in using a pale mixture of French ultramarine blue and burnt sienna and the under paint for the evergreens was a pale mixture of raw sienna and Antwerp blue.

Using burnt sienna, French ultramarine blue and alizarin crimson I put in some of the rocks along the edges if the stream.

I will post this painting again at a later date once I have painted in the foreground trees.

One painting sold today and I would like to thank new collector Mrs. Anne Herron of Lakefield, Ontario on her purchase of Golden Birches (see post on 02 June 2012). Small items were sold by Diane Collins and Penny Little.

The hours for our show are:
12 Aug 16 - 9:00am - 5:00pm
13 Aug 16 - 9:00am - 5:00pm
14 Aug 16 - 12:30pm - 4:00pm

We hope you will be able to come out and enjoy our art at some point over the remaining two days.
