Beach Lake Breeze Cumulus
Ahhh... some clouds finally developed and they were not to be squandered. These
were cumulus clouds with some marginal towering cumuli that developed along the
lake breeze front just inland from the shore line. They moved further inland as
we painted. I explained the meteorology behind the clouds but I am not sure that the
information was successfully delivered. When you paint plein air, the natural
world does all of the science for you and we as artists just have to hone our
observational skills. It was another 37 minute effort as I bounced around offering
support to my fellow painters.
We finished the painting session with a swim in Lake Huron. It was a perfect
end to a several days of some very fun painting. The water was also warmer than
I remembered! Medium burnt
sienna oil tinted 8x10
