May sketches

Below are a few sketches from May. Always such a wonderful month to paint outside. The first is just a view I saw walking to the studio one day, the bright blue shadow in the muddy water struck me. The next two are from a series I’ve been doing in the Corsini Gardens here in Florence (I did a similar series in October a couple of years back, it can be fun revisiting the same scene in a completely different season). The last is from our rained-out trip to the beach this weekend.

I’m working on a couple of longer technical posts which I hope to get up soon.
