Day 9

watercolor 6x6.5 inches

 Here's another painting  for Leslie Saeta's 30 paintings in 30 days challenge.

I painted this as the sun was about to pass from behind the tall trees yesterday in the southern sky.  It is good to see the sun get higher in the sky since solstice.  There is a haze from wood smoke from my neighbor's house behind the tall trees.

Really fabulous atmospheric effect. Such a feeling of place.

Thank you, Ellen and Laurel, I was a bit hesitant to post this one, but I guess it works. I might yet become confident of my memory.

This one feels cold. Beautiful handling of the raking light/mist/fog/smoke. Love this one.

Thank you Andrew. So good to have your complement.
