Today is the fourth and last session for the workshop I've been teaching – "Capturing the Outdoors in Pen and Color" – offered by Mispillion Art League. They will meet me out at Abbott's Mill Nature Center to put everything they learned into practice for the full hour and a half. On that site they will be able to sketch and paint the architecture of the Mill and barns to the foliage along the trails and wildlife that calls this lovely place home. It's been a lot of fun and I hope they all learned something that will help them as they continue in their artistic life.
Last week the weather held (although the sky was a bit threatening) and we were fortunate enough to be permitted to hang out at the beautiful Victorian "Towers" Bed & Breakfast. Thank you to Dan and Rhonda Bond for opening their lush and lovely gardens to my "artist/students." I couldn't think of a better place to capture the outdoors!
The wrought iron chairs in the garden made a very comfortable way of getting close to nature!
There were many nooks and corners to settle into, some just sat on the brick path!
