In mid August, I participated in a plein air event through Water Street Gallery. It ended up being a cold, rainy, seemingly miserable day for mid-August in Michigan. But once out, i really started to get into the smaller range of colors and by the way that the intense summer greens were subdued by the overcast skies. A blue sky can just be so obvious. With the rapidly changing overcast sky, i had to be so much more a careful observer, had to really look hard.
The event at Water Street ended up going great. I sold a number of paintings as did many of the other artists that participated. And I think it's launched me into a new series of work. This is one of my watercolors from yesterday..the second rainy, cold weekend day in a row for us, but now i'm rather looking forward to these days.
You can see more of these watercolors from Friday and Saturday (8/29-30) on my website: www.angelasaxon.com
