Plein Air Wooley Pond

Wooley Pond is a beloved spot.
The air was still as we began, reflections on the water inspired. As the day wore on the wind came up and the umbrellas came down. Luckily we had some shade nearby.
I hadn't painted boats for a while.  White highlights straight from the tube didn't look right. I mixed in small amounts of cadmium yellow light and that helped. I still need to play around with it. Deciding on color combinations improve with practice. More painting and practicing. All the while enjoying the pretty day.

Afterwards we went into Southampton for dinner at Red Bar. On the way, a brief shower and double rainbow. 
A perfect day.
