Finally, painting outside! It was an unusually warm day for the first weekend of June, so I wore short shorts, a tank top and crocs. I remembered sunscreen but I thought it was too windy for my fancy new plein air umbrella so I took it down. Big mistake for two reasons. Although I was very happy with my painting, the mid-tones are a bit dark when viewed indoors, because the strong daylight light was so much brighter when painting without my umbrella's shade. And because I was in the direct sunlight, I myself got fried by the sun, but only where I missed with my sunscreen. Particularly horrible are the small circle tan marks on my white feet where the holes in my crocs let in the sun.
