2014 Painting on Recreo results from Tues. Dec 9th

 'SHADOWS ON RECREO' oil on panel 12"x 16 " This was so much fun to paint. I have walked by this scene so many times and decided yes it was time to paint it.Tom and I were joined by Linda working in watercolors and a new student Barbara came by to have a look. We took up the spot reserved for the  deliveries to the store behind us called "Solutions" and we managed to dodge most of the traffic. The key here  in painting this was how much saturation or intensity of color to use. The warm blue building was slightly lighter then the background cooler blue sky. Interesting juxtapositions. And also getting enough intensity into the orange shadows was tricky too. When in doubt it seems best to go a little stronger then you normally would as when viewed indoors it will not look as saturated.
Plein air next week will be cancelled due to Christmas holidays. Stay tuned  for the last one for this year on the afternoon of 30th of December. Location to be announced soon.
