canoeing

Sunset painting and a drawing.


I thought I'd try replicating the sunset light of the evening walk and the first stars coming out.  Still haven't quite got skies down.  I think I need to thin the paint more so it goes on more evenly, though I like the glowing effect.  It's still hot, so still walking late and early.  Well, fairly early.  Early in the 8am sense, not in the 4am sense!  And stopping at streams.  I must say it's much easier walking with a saluki-cross than it used to be with a greyhound, where I had to be so very careful to plan walks that included shade and water.  Most of the time Rosie isn't even panting.  She's outside in the sun right now, in her bed on the patio, and showing no signs of being too hot.
