Fear not the heat wave...maybe

Round 2 on my plein air painting in Dumbo. Everyone warned us that we were going to croak from the heat, but we (Barbara, Ken, and I) set up comfortably on a bench under a tree.  B brought her shade buddy for extra sun protection, we had a fine selection of cookies and beverages, and a breeze at times. It was good. We even ended up in the middle of a wedding ceremony, so I had to take a break from painting to witness a couple wed on the rocky sand portion of my landscape view.

Later that evening I cracked open my new watercolor sketchbook and painted this green girl from a black and white photo.  I'm starting to love the idea of using a limited palette...
