BOILING SPRINGS ALLEY By Cecelia Lyden
A perfect day for plein air painting--cooler temperatures and lower humidity--bright sunshine and deep shadows. Boiling Springs is a great place to paint with its water sites and its both simple and interesting houses, sitting on sunny and shaded streets.
I worked on a smooth panel. I had never painted in oil on such a smooth surface and found it difficult at first, but the purplish undrpainting on the panel worked well when developing shadows.
