PALM REFLECTIONS By Cecelia Lyden
The Florida weather has been so beautifully warm and balmy-fabulous for painting outdoors.This painting was done on my first paintout here--Savannas Area Recreational Park. There are lots of palms, gnarly oaks, a canal and fields, with the backdrop of blue skies and white, puffy clouds. In this section of the canal the water was shaded heavily and the reflections were dark blue-green, creating stunning contrasts.We will be returning next Tuesday. Hopefully, Madeline Reilly will make it up from Stuart to paint with us. It will be fun to see her.
