En Plein Aire in historic village.
A Church 10" x 12" O/P
I painted this morning in a designated historic village. There were a few visitors that were happening by and felt the need to start up a conversation .
The weather started off with an overcast morning but by eleven o'clock the sun had burned off the haze and what remained was unbelievable humidity and a scorching sun. It would be fair to mention that I was seriously considering packing it in at the half way mark !
I think it was the reward of the air conditioned car that I promised myself if and when I finished this little painting. I think the reward of the AC. worked !
This painting was on a Masonite panel that had an orangey-pink acrylic wash applied to its gessoed surface. I used a limited palette for this painting and 'round' brushes.
