Daily Painting 178 Edenlawn Plantation Pink Cottage
I painted this one today, I liked how the cottage looked with all the palm trees around so nothing would do but to paint it pretty big, 12 x 16. It looked like rain so I had my plan, there is a little shed nearby I could duck into if I had to. For some reason I don't have a photo of the shed, I got to get one next time. Its tall enough to sit in but not stand up in. I think it must have been a planting shed. The roof has two feet tall plants growing up on top, lucky leaf kalanchoes. It must have rained on and off 6 times. I would stick the paints in my painting box, grab the chair and run into the shed. I thought I would never get done, probably took twice as long as usual. Its oil, all knife, plein air, alla prima.
