No Swimming

Oil on canvas 9x12"(23x30cm)
$ 200

A limited palette  was conductive to a very gray sky, with rain troughout. I did stop for 90 minutes, and at time I was holding a big umbrella with my left hand and painting with the right. Very inconvenient, but somehow I managed to finish.

Beautiful, Mariano. Not easy holding an umbrella and painting at the same time! Probably why I don't paint plein air more often! You really captured the atmosphere so well.

Hi Liz,
thank you very much. I did not hold the umbrella more than 30 minutes, not easy but was a wet day. It was a lot of fan. My best to You
