8x10 acrylic on masonite
Today, I was privileged to be invited to paint with the fine artists of Piedmont Outdoor Painting Society. The location of our paint out was Legacy Gardens located on Burlington Rd., Greensboro, NC. This was a beautiful little place that was well worth the trip to see the blooming flowers, lilly-ponds, sunlit paths and garden decorations. The early morning shades made for a great place to paint. However, when the sun moved my shadows, the sweat began to roll. Standing, facing the blazing June sun can be very demanding. Demanding in that it forces me to paint extra fast! That's another good reason to make sure you have plenty of fluids and a good hat when you paint outdoors.
