last Saturday at the
Art Gallery of Greater Victoria's
'23rd Annual Moss St. Paint-In'
As usual the event is looked forward to by
art lovers and artist alike and is always
a huge success with as many as 35,000
spectators for the five and a half hour event!
This years event was no exception.
Across the street from my site I noticed a lovely
'Lavatera' in full bloom back lite in the morning
sun as I set up. Painting it later I added an imaginary
women strolling by, though, by then I could hardly
see the shrub for the crowds of onlookers.
Painting en plein air in a situation like that was to
say the very least, very challenging and
then I went and added a figure... jeeez!
During the show I was happily surprised to have
fellow 'daily painters .com' artist
David Roberts from Winnipeg drop by for a visit wow!
Oil on wood panel 12 x 9.
Thoughts and comments always appreciated!
I have included a few photo's of my site and the
fog rolling up the street toward us.
It made things quite cool for the next couple of hours
