30 Paintings in 30 Days: September, 2014—Day 1

Happy Labor Day. While vacationing on the lake, my first entry is a plein air painting in the rain. The rain softened the colors and turned the sky and water into beautiful shades of gray. To paint the rainy gray, I resorted to lessons learned from last September's 30 paintings. One of those days, I painted with a limited "Zorn" palette. I learned how just ivory black and white can make a very nice sky. I can't wait to discover what new things I'll learn from this year's 30 paintings.

Tune in every day this month to see a fresh, new painting. 
Have a great day!
