Painting outside was great. The workshop exposed me the technique of Rob Longley who studied with Henry Hensche. I'll sift through all I learned and hopefully be able improve on color since it's his specialty!
The first painting with the buildings was a particularly gray day - but the rain held up.
I should add, this is more my way of painting. . . kind of stubborn that way, but I promise to keep an open mind and try something new soon!
