In the sun it was 33. In the shade with the wind blowing it was 18. My paints were very stiff and got stiffer as the sun set. I got out to paint later today but decided to paint the last light as the wind was picking up and I wasn’t wearing any extra layers or my Iditarod boots. It was another busy day catching up on work and squeezing in a painting at the end of the day. No time to experiment today as I had a meeting to get to after I finished painting.
This is a great project. The take away is I can fit it in and all my first 5 days have been full of work with not a speck of extra time. Again this was 20 -30 min long. A little longer with all the drawing and layout involved but I’m trying to paint loosely, with a light touch. This is David Curtis’ influence. Those Brits know a thing or two. OK see you again tomorrow. Same time same place? Will see.
