This is the second painting from our plein aire adventure at Fort Monroe on Wednesday. After lunch, figuring we had done our duty by the garden tour house, we spotted wonderful dappled sunlight hitting the wall of one of the bunkers (this might be a jail, actually, it’s hard to tell). Just as we got set up and put brush to canvas, the sun disappeared behind a thick layer of clouds and everything went flat. The wall fo this place was still really interesting with old broken barred doors and windows and holes. There was old white paint bits and lots of yellowish lichen growing on the old concrete wall. I would like to have stayed even longer, but with no sun and the wind kicking up, we sort of high tailed it out of there after this. Buy or Bid in Auction here: Bid
I hope to go back and paint some more at this wonderful site. Great stuff.
