Sunday Afternoon


Sunday Afternoon

This little watercolor was done on location, not on a Sunday as the title would suggest, but on the very first day of 2016.  I’ve set myself a goal this year to do more plein air painting.  I used to do it a lot 30 years ago, but perhaps age has made me a little less tolerant of changing light and bugs and humidity.  But I know I love to do it and so enjoyed doing this one.  Doing a painting without reference photographs for me has more emotion thrown into the mix.  I can’t be super exact about the painting but paint more of what I feel.  This was done in just about an hour or so sitting along the shores of the Manatee River in Bradenton.  It just reminds me of a leisurely Sunday afternoon.
