So here I am painting the mission again. It is a really hard building to paint probably because it is entirely hand made. We are so used to buildings with everything at perfect right angles and so on that we tend to have trouble with this kind of architecture.
And not only that, I left out the bird sitting on the side of the dome!
It has been cold, windy and raining like anything so that all my paintings have rain spots on them. Finally, I decided to paint en plein photo...in other words, in the comfort of my garage! Voila! Sun, puffy clouds, Paris...ahhh
My name is Cornelia Emery and I paint outdoors all the time. Recently, I have started doing small paintings indoors also...one every day. What an exciting challenge! Each small painting is for sale starting at $100.
