Got homesick for Charleston SC last night and decided i hadnt painted enough yesterday (only three small ones) so i jumped up and painted it.
Its funny how painting from a photograph of a place brings back all the sights, smell, sounds and atmosphere you were experiencing that day.
the photo reference was taken in march, on my way back from Key West, and is the second trip i've taken to paint Charleston. i'm hoping to get in a really great gallery in hilton head (Morris Whiteside) and they want plein air pieces of there and charleston as well as savannah. i hope i get the gig! he's supposed to let me know this spring.
maybe i'll be going there on a regular 'paid' basis!
its a very charming city and i'll never run out of things to paint there.
