More Paintings of Monhegan
Painting midday is often a drag because the light comes down harsh and the shadows hide as though they are trying to stay out of the sun. Artists prefer to paint early or late in the day, when the shadows are long and inviting. Midday is also usually hot too, and you will wind up with a massive sunburn, which at my age, doesn't help with the wrinkles. So, since we were here to paint, we all decided to paint midday anyhow and an interior in the forest was perfect...it was cool and the light filtering down was magical. To my surprise, the bugs weren't biting, yet.
