Painting at Sharky's, 9x12" oil, plein air, ©Diane Mannion
The Light Chasers plein air artistss surrounded Sharky's by the pier in Venice yesterday. Windy day, gorgeous light and sunshine... painter's paradise!
I enjoy the company of artists as much as I love painting!
But this painting was a struggle (so what else is new?). Stood in the sun and couldn't figure out why my umbrella was the only one that kept popping off, must have been in a wind gust alley because I noticed the artists in front of me had no problem. Also could not find my glasses. Also forgot the term KISS... keep it simple stupid. But aside from the tinkering and fiddling, I think this painting gives a good impression of the lovely morning.
