OK, last night was perfect

While the rest of New England sweltered, I was painting on the Harvard Footbridge. Breezes kept it cool and kept the bugs away –  here are the results.  The canvases are both 10×20 inches.

    I did both paintings Tuesday night – I got to the footbridge about 6:30 after work. The first one was meant to be just a quick exercise to loosen up, and the light was changing fast at that point. I started the night view a bit after 8 when it was getting dark, and lights were turning on. I’m trying to remember, maybe I was home by 10:30 or we left then? Lots of foot traffic back and forth, which at night is reassuring. I wouldn’t paint there alone at night.

    Anne took the picture, she had been talking about doing a night painting and she found the right spot – we finally got a day when we could both say “yes, tonight.” and it was amazingly cool and comfortable.

    Couldn’t make it to Bennington this year, but there have been some solid painting experiences.

    Painting fast? More that I am trying to keep up with the moment and painting looser and more decisively, plus I got some new large brushes that I actually really like which makes a huge difference – Silver Brush Grand Prix.
