Poolside Cafe, Watercolor, 9" x 11"
Still Life With Fish, watercolor, 11" x 9".
There was no painting yesterday due to visiting friends. So I made up for it today. Now, I am down to one sheet of WC paper on my block and only a half a day of holiday left before we head home. Will I paint tomorrow? Depends how much I pack tonight. I did have a wonderful break from working in oils this last week. I also enjoyed being carefree in Plein air.

The Sunbathers was as big a challenge as the fidgety model of yesterday. The winds were blowing 18mph and so was the paint. I stood my ground though and did manage to get some to land on paper. Though tempted to solidify forms this morning, I didn't; there's a geometric pattern here I like. I let it stand as is--loose and child-like.
Hoist the sails and let's fly! High winds are not conducive to Plein air painting with watercolor or putting on a cover-up.
