I painted this last week but as it is thundering and lightening here in LA today, I figured it was time to post!
This was the last painting from last Wednesday night at the beach. The sun had set and a group of us waited for the full moon to come up, but alas, it was not happening. A little boy had run up and run away during an earlier painting …”Everyone’s a critic” I thought…but then he came back later and declared “You are a good artist!”…which led me to think it was time to quit while I was ahead. It was late and cold…time to head home for a very late dinner.
I think this makes a great pairing with the one posted from the other day.
So here they are together:
This is the first of three paintings I did Wednesday evening with a group of plein air painters. We were waiting for the moon, but luckily I got started since the moon never actually came through the cloud cover.
