I picked a spot to paint today early -- like 8:30 am -- when the shadows were long and dramatic. By 10:30, they had changed so much (shorter, different angle) that I realized I needed to stop painting. I will go back into this in the studio.
I have a lot of color variation to work out, as this is just the lights/darks and a few colors dropped in.
The 8-month old baby boy on the farm with the big blue eyes was glad to let me paint his stroller.
