Back from my workshop with Anne Blair Brown. Thought we were going to sunny, warm Florida but it felt a little more like Michigan. Pretty bone chilling for a couple of days there in beautiful Amelia Asland. What an abundance of things to paint. I felt out of sorts all week because I am not a plein air painter. I can not blame my performance on equipment this time either. Loved my versa easy L . So much to learn about a million different things. Anne helped move me along a bit on this journey. I was not very happy with anything I painted and did lots of scrub offs. Feel like I learned some good basics of landscape painting. Have miles to go to figure out color when painting plein air. I am going to challenge myself to paint outside at least once a week. Not today. Need to move out of my comfort zone to grow in my studio work. It HURTS.
So enjoyed Anne and all the other participants in the workshop. Artists are just the best!
