Other good news is I have a well attended one day workshop coming up at the Hyde Collection next week. It got switched from the 10th to the 31st. I am gathering my thoughts on how to get across the idea of the joy of painting plein air, how to work in pastel, about choosing a scene that one adjusts for composition, color and value - all in one day. Stay tuned for that.
Other workshops are filling including the Adirondack Plein Air 5-Day Workshop at White Pine Camp in September.
Workshops and Saturday Plein Air Painters keep me charged up. I have to do it and while others benefit from the workshops and the painting, I feel like it is all just for me. By getting these events going and being immersed in the work and the painting, I feel like I get more out of it than the participants. I hope that my enthusiasm catches others and it gets into their own work.
I do need to get back to the other work. I will make a better attempt at writing a bit and more often.
I'll leave you with a couple of images quite opposite each other but both from my hand.
