My wet in wet technique is much improved thanks to Jane . (see previous Lake Bonaparte posts) My weekend turned into an adventure with lasting friendships and invaluable hands on instruction and memories. I now dream of attending her workshop in Tuscany Italy 2010!Lake Bonaparte, NY on a cloudy /chilly afternoon. Thank you all!

Hummm, printed sideways - but it still a good view - This hand carved wooden sign hangs outside the lodge and this gourd became class favorite and we all sketched it.
We took a field trip to the Oswegachi River, a beautiful river park with a small waterfall, rocky outcroppings, marshy areas and gorgeous autumn trees, we found several interesting wild mushrooms as well - This was my first REAL plein air work, quite challenging with cold weather and wind, just enough to 'rearrange' my supplies frequently and slide things about enough to smudge wet paint, quite a learning experience, but so worth while.
I have more sketches to finish and photographs to load - so stay tuned!
