So we arrived at the Bellagio after almost running out of gas in the desert. The next day we went down to the pool. I was hoping no one would stop me from whipping out the oils…they didn’t. Still think gouache would’ve been a better choice, but I’d left them home. People got in my way as I tried to paint this, but no one seemed remotely interested. They had better things to do! I did another one the next day. I had to paint from a shaded area–it was about 100 degrees. I would wind up with a heat rash–not fun!
