I'm realizing more and more how important it is to paint wet into wet to get the look I want. But sometimes you have to walk away for an hour to let the paint get tacky, so you can put paint on top of wet paint without having it lift off. This seems to be most important with with transparent colors like alizarin crimson.

Oil, 8" x 10"I painted on Cape Cod the other day with two good friends. The General Store in Brewster was a fun subject and we had a great spot in the shade across the street. If I painted this realistically, the bottom would have been all cars and trucks. Traffic on the Cape in the summer!

We had a good time painting at historic Coggeshall Farm in Bristol RI on Wednesday afternoon. It was hot, but we were in the shade and had a nice breeze. One of the costumed interpreters modeled for us.
I'm cheating here, I didn't like the paintings that I did of our models so I'm posting a little painting I did from photos later of two of the farm people taking a lunch break, with the resident cat.
Oil, 6" x 6"
I thought everyone else did a great job on their paintings and drawings of the model. Thanks to Jill, Janice and Suzanne for giving me photos of their work.
