Finally, we’re having June weather and it’s a delight. I returned to Clinton Street (I think it’s north of Degraw), to this church and its garden. I’ve been going a bit past mid-day, which means the sun is high and a bit behind the scene. It makes for some fabulous shadows.  It was a little slow going yesterday because as soon as I got there clouds kept coming and going. And, I forgot my big floppy hat. So, I had this odd combination of waiting for the sun to come back out and then having to shield my eyes when it did.

Here’s my set-up:

And here’s how the painting looked at the end of the day:

Will have to get back there soon, cross your fingers for more great weather (that’s my painter friend and studiomate, Regina!).
