Way out, on the back forty of the campus, there exists a group of old houses that are not maintained and belong to the University. Most likely housed faculty a long time ago. The buildings are clustered around some large shade trees. Plenty of squirrels and other critters became frantic on our arrival. Their routine was interrupted by of a bunch of artists setting up to paint. What a great spot for a studio.
This morning was very sunny and I tried to capture the intense cast shadows on the structures. They changed quickly as the morning moved on. I had several sketches to mark the shading and cast shadows and this was a great help. I will be back.
