You know it’s summer when your yellow, gold and green paints run out before your Payne’s grey ( goodbye winter and spring!)
Summer is lots of outdoor sketching, hikes and art shows. Sometimes I paint in the warm sunlight. And sometimes the light is so bright, I leave it out and paint in the cool shadows for contrast.
Geraniums in bloom, downtown Saratoga.
Orange plastic webbing contrasts with the greens and browns of foliage at the end of a trail. Stanford, Palo Alto.
A hike up the hills at Stanford to see the huge radiotelescope that’s referred to as just ‘The Dish’.
Downtown Los gatos on a sunny but windy day.
You can see more of my summer sketches on my flickr stream here.
