Today I’m in Augusta, ky. A little river village very close to my heart. It’s been difficult picking a spot to paint, but I decided on this scene on 4th street.
I’m interested in the porch with rocking chair, flowering trees, hill in the distance while looking into the morning light.
There’s a lot here, and I’ll have to use my artist eye to edit the scene and put it all together into a painting. This will serve as a great example of how painting from life lets you do things a photo can’t
It’s nice to see friends again…especially other artists. what a treat to get a nice photo of ME while at work on a painting?!!!!
