Art Center Demo

6'x 9" gouache. I almost cancelled class on the day that I did this demo because of the
rainy weather. We met up at Art Center and decided to try painting outside on the
wet lawn. Of course everyone was discouraged not only by the drizzle but the lack of
direct sunlight as well, so I did this demo. It's really nice to paint landscape in overcast
lighting rather than sun because the light really never changes much and the suject is
more pure rather than being all about the sunlight. You also can achieve much richer
color as well.
