En Plein Air: Dock at Noon (Oil, 11 x 12)
I didn't go out till after lunch today, so I didn't want to go too far. I stopped at Woody's dockyard and found a shaded area by the dock. The spots touched by the sun were very eye-catching. I immediately set up to paint. I had painted Woody's sailboat before but in a different angle. Mosquitoes didn't bother me much. However, ants were such a nuisance that I could almost tell how they dropped from the tree and crawled down from my head to the neck and then to my arms. I simple brushed them off. When I heard thunders rolling and getting closer, I called it a day and began to clean things and loaded them into the trunk. Glad I got home before it poured down.
