Dining al Fresco

Dining al Fresco, Acrylic on Watercolor Paper, 10"x9", $250 (unframed)
Sorry about my absence. It has been a while since I last posted.  I've been working on my technique (when I've painted.)  I've also been getting my gardens ready for the summer - weeding, pruning, planting, mulching.  They're in pretty good shape now.

This painting is from a photo I took on Church Street in Burlington last summer.  There are restaurants with outdoor seating and loads of umbrellas in every color on the street during the warm season.  For this painting, I actually began by putting an abstract pattern of blue, orange and red on a piece of watercolor paper.  Then I used my palette knife and squeegee to add and cover as needed to create an abstracted view of an umbrella and the people under it.  I like the effect - very loose.
