I love nocturnes. I purchase them as well as paint them. I have one by Randy Pitts, Debbie Cusick, Cynthia Csalovszki (actually maybe two), Hall Groat II, and several of my own. Our FCPAP (First Coast Plein Air Painters) scheduled a paint out for last night. It was so much fun. The weather was beautiful, the location (San Marco, in Jacksonville Fl) had tons of paintings waiting to be plucked from it and the energy of the area was fabulous. I didn’t finish my piece but will go back to do so next week some time. It is always great to paint with this varied group. There were 5 of us there. I was the only one doing watercolor last night. Admittedly, I had little faith in myself, but was determined to enjoy myself regardless of a success or failure at the end. I think this freed me and helped me relax into the task.
