This was painted on Monday July 8th but I had to wait for paintings to dry so that I could scan them. It was a very hot day at Bronte Harbour but fortunately we could find some shade and there was a gentle breeze coming off the lake.
This was painted last Monday. It was just as hot with a bit less of a breeze. Do oil paints ever get soft when it is this hot. Three of us all painted this scene as an exercise is getting the shape of the water correct. I am happy with my result.
This was painted Thursday. It was rather horrendous. It was very very hot, there wasn't even a whisper of a breeze and the deer flies were biting like crazy. It was still good to be painting. I love my job even if it doesn't pay well.
