Workshop in Taylor Falls this week....

This week I am taking a workshop from Marc Hanson of Taylor Falls, MN. Today was the first day and what a treat. I am learning so much. Marc is an accomplished plein air painter who works in oils and pastels. His work is beautiful and it is such a treat to have one giving a workshop within such a short distance from where I live.

Today we did value studies. The first two in black and white with grey tones and the next two in color. Marc did a demo and made it look so easy....it wasn't. Tomorrow we are just doing black and white studies, saving the color for the next day.

Thank goodness the weather is beautiful. Hopefully, it will remain this way the rest of the week.

More to come ~
