This view is late evening as the sun starts to set. Just enough light comes shining in and lights up only portions of the sea. My Jeep's cast shadow is also seen here with some sailboats in the distance.
Had a blast today! Thank you everyone for taking the time to come out and paint with me. I taught a group of super fun people painting in the sun at the Moody Gardens Mansion in Galveston Island, Texas. We will do another workshop like this in the future. Below are the only photo's I have for you as we started to set up. Everyone kept me super busy and I forgot to take more photo's. I didn't get everyone included, more coming and going to get gear. If anyone has any photo's of the group send them to my email and I'll post them.
I like techy stuff and vintage electronics is on the top of the list. I think it's really neat as that don't make them like they used to, well in some cases they don't. In the foreground are two big electrolytic capacitors, ooh dangerous stuff there. I used to be a Junior Electronics Engineer and I've used the older scopes like this one plus the newer kinds and the older ones are fun to use. This is an older Oscilloscope made in 1974. This one is my dad's I think he bought it to repair, but never did. He used to work for NASA and new his stuff.
I have a few more of this type of vintage stuff I will be painting in the future. So stay tuned for vintage heaven.
A spontaneous painting do to the traffic on Seawall Blvd, thank you Labor Day!! I decided I'd just park at the first open spot and paint something. As I looked out the people on the beach were interesting and kids playing in water but will they sit still long enough. There was one guy on a rock but nahh. I figured I would just do a surf painting something like this. After gearing up under the shade of the jeep I noticed what I really liked, the light on the rocks and the shadow they cast upon the beach, it just came together nicely. The waves that day at this location were bouncing around do to the construction plus tourist asking if they could take a look. I just responded oh I just started. Sometimes I have to do that especially since these are worth all my time I can put into them while on location. If this one doesn't sell I think it just might become part of my permanent collection.
