Waiting for the Sky...

waiting for the sky...

mid/late afternoon setting up...
Am getting ready for the Jan. 17th Opening of Venice Plein Air opening.  For more info on that visit VPA blog.  Ever since New Years Eve beautiful sunset, have been wanting to get back to PAINT en Plein Air the view.  Sometimes photographs just can NOT capture the true colors in the scene.  The sky in this view... was just one of those.  Needed to revisit the site to capture the dunes and trees too.  Many details end up just in a silhouette when photographed with most cameras, especially a camera phone. Only sharing a few of the photos from the sunrise to sunset work day here... A day that doesn not get any better than this though.  BEAUTIFUL.  The PAINTING will be shared (I hope) at the opening!  Going to use the field study to make a larger studio piece from... until then... here are a few photos from the middle of the day on...  A COLD is kick'in my butt today. Still plan to plein air with VPA monday though, at least say 'hi' to any and all there(Update
-Cold kicked my butt, checked-in, then home back to bed)

couple of composition ideas before final thumbnail
