It was partly sunny so the values fluctuated throughout the morning, high-contrast in between clouds to low-contrast with the sun behind the clouds. Which turned out to be a good thing - usually when outdoors, I paint at a faster pace. This time I was forced to slow down and wait for the passing clouds. That said, a quote credited to Claude Monet came to mind, "Color is my day-long obsession, joy and torment."
: )The opening of our Plein Air Austin Exhibit is this evening, 4-6p at the Corridor of Art, 700 Lavaca in Austin and you are most welcome to join us! Due to tighter security, it's a tough window of time for our guests, but the show will be up through November 7th.
