Sunshine Painters [21x14 watercolor]

Sunshine Artists

The three figures in this piece are heading across Sunshine Meadows looking for a great place to paint.  There really are no bad places to paint up there but there sure could have been a bit less active weather.  Maybe they were looking for a sheltered place, lol.  This painting is really about the light on the mountain…  one of the many clouds was casting a big shadow across all but the very top of this peak [anybody know which mountain this is?].  I loved the cast shadow and I wanted to show how soft the meadow was that day.

Here’s a close up of my painters…  you don’t need much detail to describe them at all.

closeup sunshine painters I’m debating adding a walking stick to the figure in the centre.  What do you think?
