|9" x 12" Oil on Panel|
The irony is, to paint that shade I had to stand out in the sun, and in front of an outcrop of pale rock that reflected the sun's intensity. During the course of the painting I emptied every water bottle from my day pack and still ended the session thirsty!
But then, hot sun notwithstanding, it was good to be out painting.
A passerby stopped briefly to visit and take a picture of my painting. Later that evening he sent a copy of his photo to me.
