This afternoon I re-worked my painting (I'll call it a study) from last week at Indian Lake. Another painting to add to my Indian Lake series collection.

I was thinking I'd paint clouds last night but when I arrived at Indian Lake I didn't see any I liked.
So I painted a clump of trees that were backlit. (Lower photo.)
Towards the end of the day the sky got more interesting and I painted this one of the sunset.

We had a good group for our outing yesterday and a nice evening. After the rain passed through (just as I planned it!) we had really nice lighting. The attached photos show the initial and last skies. I found myself chasing the rapidly changing light a bit and then going color blind from looking into the sun, so I didn't take full advantage of the evening, but I'll probably work some more to fix , or create new, paintings based on memory and photos from yesterday. And it was nice to connect with other painters again even if six feet apart.

Hi, everyone! I just wanted to pass on that Urban Sketchers Madison has restarted monthly sketching events in only outdoor locations with the understanding that we will keep doing appropriate social distancing. We draw or paint with the medium of our choice. This coming Sunday we will be on the grounds of the Garver Feed Mill near Olbrich Gardens from 1-3pm. Here's the link to our blog and there is also a Facebook group. https://drawmadison.blogspot.com/ Pat
