Painting in the Fog

Lilibeth André with a painting

Here I am with one of the completed paintings.

I visited Shoreacres near Galveston. The day was foggy and cool. I saw egrets, gulls, hawks, osprey, a muskovy duck and a spoon bill. Several little birds I wasn’t able to identify were there as well. The marshes were replete with birds finding ideal cover among the still remaining debris on the ground from hurricane Ike. No alligators. Too cool for them. In this area you can find the ocean, bayou, and brackish waters with their related wildlife and flora.

The challenge of painting in foggy weather is that colors are subdued and finding excitement in the piece mostly rests on composition. I had various grasses, shrubs and trees before me. It was peaceful with almost no distraction due to the cool weather and conditions.


  1. I enjoyed reading about Galveston. Lilibeth, you write really well!

    • Thanks Mieko. Still need to plan a visit to your studio. Maybe in 2010!
