Paint Faster

It seems as if summer has finally arrived. The fog and drizzle of the last few weeks have cleared away leaving us with warm air and blue skies.

On that note the garden perennials have taken the opportunity to push out buds. I made a point to watch the whole thing happen. What could be better? Well, watching it happen with a canvas and some paint to record the event. It the spirit of keeping it simple only a bare minimum of equipment is used. 

A tripod and canvas, paint, brushes and a palette to mix on is about it. Water and rags for cleaning and wiping also help make the work easy. 

As was the case with the narcissus earlier in the season the painting went on into the evening and the work moved towards a garden nocturne as light left the yard.
