Return From Zion
We returned from my Zion workshop last night to find the busy studio builders have been preparing for the concrete pour this morning. Lots going on! Photos to follow later today.
I had a wonderful time at the workshop. Except for one day of cold, cloudy conditions the weather was beautiful. Here are two of the paintings I did while there. Painting en plein air is not my forte, but I am getting more tolerant of those conditions and enjoyed being out there, painting.
The focus of the workshop was exporing the fluidity of watercolors and letting the water push the colors together on the paper. I punched up my color choices and had fun adding colors I normally don't use (manganese blue, for one).
Sign me tired, but satisfied, from a good workshop experience in a beautiful setting...Zion National Park.
