A few weeks back some of us PPAP hit a new spot to painting in Havertown at the Lawrence Cabin , which is very similar to the Swedish Cabin that the group has painted at several times, and is located about equal distances from my home.
The spot I decided to painting and my easel
We all met up at the new spot and Alina and I spent some time exploring the cabin and the grounds looking for painting spots. Alina decided to paint up by the cabin as did Cynthia, but I decided to paint down off the grounds looking down on the stream below.
By the time we started it was close to solar noon and I was aware that soon the light would change as the sun crossed over into afternoon and the shadows would reverse. I really liked the high vantage point looking down onto the stream with the wash and rocks below with a foreground element of the tress in the foreground.
I set up my basic palette and went to work. I even attempted to film my process but I ended up stopping after a spell as I think I need a better rig or maybe a camera person to aid in the process.
The afternoon rushed past quick and eventually the sun
changed enough that I had to stop work and call it a day.
But I did shoot a video of my painting process and posted it in two parts of youtube
Part one Here and part two Here
