El Moyo restaurant set up beach umbrellas and tables for us to use at 8:30a.m.. It is right beside the malecon so the views were varied. I found it hard to settle down and focus on "something" as there was the malecon with a couple of vendors setting up, men fishing from shore and in boats, walkers and even a crocodillo in the canal....so many choices! The light was very overcast and grey to begin with but then the colours started showing themselves.
I chose a straight on view with a lone fisherman on the rocks. I started on a bright red canvas I had painted on with left over paint from last year. It was a tough way to start as everything was dull and various shades of gray. I started trying to chase the light and the canvas was feeling slimy so time to quit. I took a photo and finished it at home. As soon as someone is ready to leave, we take a photo of the works in progress (not designed to be final paintings at this point).
