I'm teaching a class tomorrow and am concerned about the heat wave.
So today I set up under the deck at the beach to see if it was tolerable.
There was a delicious off shore breeze and
I was amazingly comfortable, even at high noon.
Unfortunately, there was a lot of glare off the sand and water
and it was so hot and humid, everything was shrouded in a haze.
This is the scene I chose, because it was away from the glare.
The challenge was how to paint this with no clear light and shadow pattern.
Hazy, HOT, and Humid
6 x 6
I had to keep all the values in the middle range
and cooler and lighter as they receded.
This is not my favorite lighting situation to paint,
but I always love a challenge.
Can't wait to see what tomorrow will bring.
