|My errant palette knife has returned home, with a spiffy monogram.|
|A wee little sketch of rocks and a tree.|
Patricia McDermond and I had 45 minutes to paint or draw before it was time to dress for dinner, so we wandered back to the creek with our watercolor sketch kits. I didn’t fall in this time, but I didn’t paint much that was brilliant, either. Three fast and weak watercolors in my notebook and I was done.
|A wee little watercolor sketch of the same tree. One drawn and three watercolor sketches in less than an hour.|
It usually takes me about three hours to do a 9X12 plein air painting. But that doesn’t include the driving time, the sketching time, or the falling-in-the-creek time.
|Success is a glass of wine on your friend's deck in the woods.|
There are still a few openings in my 2014 workshop in Belfast, ME. Information is available here.
