Casa Grande & the New Almaden Quicksilver Mining Museum, New Almaden, Saturday, February 15, 2014

Most all winter we've complained about the relentless blue skies and relatively balmy days we've experienced for our paintouts.     No complaints today:  cold grey skies, a cutting wind and the promise of rain --- a perfect February day --- it's great to be a plein air painter!

For information about Casa Grande and the New Almaden Quicksilver Mining Museum, see: 

Upcoming Paintouts:
  • Thursday, February 20, 2014:   Friends Meeting House, San Jose

Laurie - "dressed for success"
A problem with overcast days is that there are no distinct shadows which flattens things  bit.   But at least they're not moving which presents a different set of problems.    Brad

Well, I survived a cold, windy winter morning painting the back of this renovated, old house.    The "grand," leafless sycamore tree vied for my attention and I'm not sure if I "pushed back" the value contrast enough.    Laurie
