Among the Memorials

Sunday, February 11, 2018

A friend organized a painting session at a nearby cemetery. It was quite a peaceful place, with stately mature trees and weathered headstones. The day started off sunny, but the clouds (and wind!) rolled in after lunch.

I was sitting in the shade, so my work took a long time to dry. Of course I also got impatient and dove into the wet areas too quickly. Consequently, mud -- and some overworking. It was a challenge to leave all the white spaces for the headstones, too.
