Painting in the sunshine :)

Love the summer weather....what a treat to haul my easel outside and paint in the shade of the tree just off of our back deck!
Granted the acrylic paints dry almost instantley and I'm constantly "spritzing" the paint with a water bottle...but oh is it worth it!
I'm just waiting for an underpainting to dry so that I can start adding glaze layers to it!
Later this afternoon I'm off to the beach for a paddle..... I really need to find (or start) a SUP team!!
Tomorrow morning my hubby and I are planning to cycle down to the small coffee shop for an early morning cuppa! Will be the first time I will have ridden my bike since my surgery...so I'm a bit "tentative" about how long I'll be able to sit on the seat! (YIKES!) Ah well...I can always turn around and come home if it's too much!
Back to painting! We've got these gorgeous flowers blooming right now that I am trying to capture...think I'm getting the "essence" but not the replica....
