“Afternoon Shade”

March 15, 2010

The day is literally smoking except that it is also very humid. Try 100 for both the humidity percentage and for the Fahrenheit scale. Too hot to paint? Well, not really, although with this humidity acrylic paints take longer to dry. Things need a little clean-up back in the studio.

Something about painting on a day like this is the light that filters moistly through the leaves to puddle on the grass, the sidewalk, cars and people. Watching the scene as I was, people are relaxed in the warm moist air but you can see they want to find an airconditioned oasis soon. Birds are watching too and seem to enjoy the solitude of an otherwise busy parkspace.
