|The purple jacaranda grove in Makawao. Jacaranda's start blooming at this 2,000 ft. altitude.
The orange and yellow-orange flowers of the Silver Oak are a complement color to the cobalt sky. I like to put complements from my color wheel side by side when I see them happen... and two major sets of complements is hard to pass up. Purple jacarandas and yellow-green sunlit grass is a given. Expect perfection, it happens all the time!
|Day 1, it's very windy but a beautiful day Upcountry Maui. Today's medium is alkyd oil medium and oil paints. Jean Giordano is painting with me.
| We found a place in the shade with a little wind protection and by 10:30 we were painting, well Jean was painting, I was drawing till 12:00. We finished for the day at 2:45.
The other tree that is in full bloom is the Silver Oak (or Black Oak.)
|Day 2, March 22, 2003.
I went back to my old favorite mixed oil medium,
Drawing on the dry paint with white chalk to make the road lines and shadows.
