Painting by Candlelight!
HI, well Hurricane Irene is almost here. It made landfall in NC this morning and is heading our way. When we woke up,we had coffee and breakfast and then the electricity went out. No shower, no hot water,hurry drink the coffee while it's tepid... ha ha.It's 11 am. I started a small sketch. Why I chose something detailed I don't know. I had a candle on my art table and the window is there but it's darker than normal with the rain and wind coming down. The candle didn't help much. So anyway. I had just laid in the sky/background tree wash and the power came on.(This is Davis Wharf,Va. a few years ago). I ran to get my shower while we still have power. I'll go back to the painting in a minute! Living in the country we don't always get the power back soon. I'll add more trees to redefine some lines,still a lot of work to finish it.. Keep safe and good luck in the storm. Talk to you soon, Diana ps Maybe Daisy has the right idea, she hasn't moved all morning..
