En Plein Air: Summer Noon and Something Else
Late this morning, my friend David Stein and I decided to paint at Forest Gardens. it was a clearing in the woods with a short wall on one side. Also posted here are the yoga master Rajdutt and the graceful lady Lea. They were completed yesterday but neither of them are to my satisfaction. When the sun was up in the sky, Rajdutt looked like a black-white photo. The sun was directly in my eyes and I had to wrap it in a hurry. For Lea's portrait, maybe because of the disruptive environment, without my knowing, I digressed from the expressive and concise draft to something quite different. Lea is such a paintable lady. I would like to repaint her if she would let me.
