Sometimes it is good to go back and try the old favorite medium. It had been a couple of summers since I had done watercolors, too caught up in getting a handle on those oils. This was fun & very fast!
We just didn't get to go swimming near enough in 2013. Feeling the pull of the water on our last sixty degree day in October, the shimmering was lovely but I was not going to be getting wet and shivering!
This piece was in the window at Frameworks Gallery as part of the Outdoor Painters of Minnesota group show. There were over 50 members participating. I am always amazed and inspired by this show; all the abilities, styles and perspectives of a group of folks who share the same passion in going outdoors and painting the beauty of Minnesota.
