get your kicks on route 766

The 766 is a road with consistently lovely views - one can stop pretty much anywhere along it and find something to paint!



   The sky was just phenomenal today, wind-whipped purple clouds and that yellowy light that sometimes infuses the atmosphere... my old camera cannot capture it.  However, I think I'm getting better at painting the skies out here.  
   I've been paying more attention to the colours, trying to get them accurately, and using a more dry-brushing type of technique which seems to be working well.
