Yesterday I taught a plein air workshop at the Smith Gilbert Gardens in Georgia. It got pretty hot, up into the 90's by the afternoon, but we were able to find some shade and had a fun day painting in this beautiful spot.
I did a brief demo in watercolor of this area of sunlit lilies.
Started out capturing the yellow lilies and establishing the light areas
Continued building in the darker foliage behind.
Here is another beautiful view of the garden with lots of contrasting yellow and purples ( and one of our artists Barbara on the right).
Everyone had a fun day and I am planning another for the fall ( September 19) when things cool off a bit.
