Sharon Painting

#21 of 30/30.
 Sharon Yarbrough painting at Artists Acres a few weeks ago when it was so cold she had to wear fingerless gloves.  Always a rare treat to paint folks all bundled up in Florida!

Sharon has done a fabulous job leading our Peace River Painters plein air group!  Many thanks!  Not only is she a tremendous leader, kind person, and super organizer... but also a terrific artist.  Visit her website and check out Peace River Painters, too.  (Sister group of the Light Chasers)

Underpainting sketch on a panel I turned upside down... woman under beach umbrella reading a red book (Sharon's nose wasn't really that red)!  Painting was completed alla prima, wet into wet, all at once.
