So the first foray with my gear was out the back door of our house to do a quick sketch of the pretty little pond on the 18th hole. The weather was getting iffy real fast, so I found a spot between a Palmetto and a palm tree out of the wind and only 50 or so feet from house so I could dash back in when the rain arrived. Fortunately, it held off long enough to get a satisfying plein air sketch done.

The rain kept us all indoors for a couple of days, so I set up my setup and painted in the kitchen using a photo I had taken of the house across the street from us. I love the architecture of low-country homes... the elevated foundations, facades, pillars and arches. I love the shady, wooded feel of the live oaks and the tropical feel of palm trees everywhere. This house seems so charming, all yellow in the sun and cool teal in the shadows and it was a great way to spend that rainy day.
