Plein Aire Painting Class
One morning we all gathered at the Davis Train Station for painting. Everyone was worried that we would get a parking ticket since there was a 2 hour maximum. This was the first time for many to paint on location. It was a great day for painting with the station busy and trains coming and going. I quickly sketched the simplest of forms and told them to do the same. We then pained in the big blocks and proceeded with details. They were very surprised that a painting could be done with such simplicity. All the paintings and then some done at home arrived at the next class for critique. The class was really excited and ready to try it again.
