.August 1st in PEI
Such a beautiful day. Hot, humid and under threat of rain. And so, I set up my waterclours. These are scenes from Howe Point looking at Durell Point. I seem to be developing the habit of painting outside on days like this. The humidity causes the paint to act up - makes it difficult to get a clean line and the colours seem to dissipate into the paper more and fade out. Frustrating. But I seem to be getting good at painting in these conditions. My philosophy is to seize the moment. If opportunity presents itself then I just have to go with it. The first painting is when the rain was threatening. The second painting you can see the rain approaching. I had to back under the eaves of the cottage to complete it.
