Packed the carry-on baggage for tomorrow, and then went painting right before lunch, just to use up all the paints before I leave to Pennsylvania. It was quiet at McClellan. I like the quietness so I can focus on making a good painting, but I still like to paint with a group so we can learn from each other. I think I have made some progress in handling the colors of the intertwined leaves/tress. In another word, less muddy. But I need to work on the forground. it's too dull.
Took pictures of my 2 summer paintings to test the Nikon D90 settings Ying-Kuen made for me. (Mission Santa Clara at left, and Picchetti Winery at right).
