100 Days Project

Janet: One alla prima painting, every day for 100 days

I'm going to paint alla prima (i.e. start and finish in one session) every day.

Day 7:

Motukaraka Pt, Pauatahanui Inlet

This painting put me back on track for the project, day 7. I decided to be brave and take the easel down to the Point and paint en plein air, in public view. A lovely Wellington winter day (very warm) and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Only later in the day did a passing resident stop to ask if he could look at the painting. His only comment "my sister paints when she visits - she wants to sell her work but doesn't know where around here". Was rather disconcerting to realise he really wasn't that bothered about my painting!
