Deb Lynch Demo

Thursday I was blessed to watch Deb Lynch give a late afternoon painting demo.
I couldn't help but to tease her about her Columbo inspired coat!  She explained she wears neutral colors so they don't bounce onto her canvas.  

She stressed the importance of not following a photo as there is always a color discrepancy.  I knew I could remember the colors, which are absolutely beautiful.  The next day I worked from my previous images as well as photo reference.  I find the camera distorts perspective as well, 
though I was happy to capture this latest painting,

The clouds were hanging on the West Maui Mountains so pretty, I took this through the window of a moving car, driving home.  My mind is in a whirl of possible paintings for this coming week.

Sunset reflected on my husbands car,
his mind is in a whirl of all the surf predicted! :)

Have a productive week, Aloha Ral
