I was feeling encouraged by my success on Thursday when I got to Lake Kittamaqundi on Friday. The weather was again very pleasant and we had a really good turn-out: me, Barbara, Kim, Rana, Kate, Rita, Maria, Brenda, and Cathy, and we all settled down to paint along the waterfront near Clyde’s and the Artists’ Gallery. I considered a variety of views but ended up back on the bit of lawn overlooking the cement walking path, where it turns under the trees to follow the lake shore. The movement of the path, the dappled light coming through the trees, and the view of the lake beyond all is very nice, and even though I’d painted that view before, in 2009, I still found it attractive and wanted to try it again. This time, although I was pleased that I’m getting more consistent in avoiding fussy details, I am not 100% thrilled with my painting. I think it’s salvageable, but it will need some work before it gets posted here.
