The theme of the workshop was "Drawing and Painting from Nature -- Outside and Inside the Studio". . .
and we did just that . . .
We had some great discussions . . .
|Diana taking everyone on a tour of her property, before they all started sketching|
Bill's lovely arrangements from their garden -- which we brought into the studio in the afternoon.
|There was something to sketch, in every direction!|
Inside the studio, after lunch, we did some color studies.
Back into the house in the afternoon -- for wine and sharing . . .
The next morning, we were back outside for more sketching . . .
After painting in the studio all afternoon, we were ready for a glass of wine, and more discussion and sharing of paintings --
|Our friend, Janice, stopped by and offered to be our "rotating easel"|
On the last day of our workshop, everyone painted in the studio all day -- and in most cases, finished one large painting. A few people were able to start and finish another one.
So much fun! See you next year, Durango!
