"Grey Day on a Lake in Irvine" 8" x 8"
Went out 2 Saturdays ago and painted this in Irvine. It was extremely grey and dreary and I was hungry. I am not good at fabricating color and unfortunately I was trying to make it more interesting than it was. I learned a lot about the importance of inspiration. I needed to ask the question, "what inspires me about this scene". I know I liked the tree on the left when I think about it, and that was about it. The saving grace in it all was going and having a nice lunch with a painting pal and talking ART! Thanks Kim :)
