Soothing colors in this, which I like. I posted this on Twitter just after it was finished and someone replied that they could feel the end of the day heat. That was wonderful to hear because I didn't mention what time of the day it was painted or how hot it had been that day so I was surprised and very glad that those elements came throught in the painting itself without an explanation. Plein air painting, you just can't beat it for catching the feel of a place or "painting the day" as some call it.
