House by the Lake, Matthews, NC

8x10, oil on canvas panel

Carol, who I met at The Charlotte Art Guild, and I ventured out for some plein air painting. It was a beautiful day, not too hot, not too cold, and not windy. I painted a smaller one first to warm up, then begin this one. I really enjoyed having some warmer colors to paint--all green can be quite soothing, but it's hard to obtain much variety.

It's rainy today so I shall be painting in the studio. I've starting using my computer to show my photos. It's not quite like being there, but closer that holding a photo. I think it must be the light from the screen. Also it's easy to crop photos and get a more interesting composition.
