And I finally felt up to adding a bit on the deck and shadows painting. I didn't like the pure white on the deck so dirtied it up a bit and then added just a pale wash of a warm yellow to give it a glow instead of looking untouched. Okay, I admit it - I LOVE pure white on others' paintings but on mine they just make me think I've left it undone!
The temperature has cooled down to a very nice 65F at night so the morning and afternoon were very nice, indeed. I wish it would remain this way...but that won't happen.
