Friday was the final day of our Grand Manan workshop and it was a busy one. We painted in North Head harbour and most of the group focused on the fishing boats although the colourful floats caught a few eyes, as well.
We wind up the painting day with an on-site critique. Here’s a sampling of the day’s work.
It was back to the Marathon Inn for our Farewell Dinner. Our choice was steak or lobster and not too many chose steak. Grand Manan lobster comes from the icy waters of the Bay of Fundy. The shells are hard and the meat is sweet.
Instruction on the fine art of eating lobster, without missing any good bits, is part of the package. John is a real veteran and a great help to the uninitiated.
After dinner, the tables are cleared and re-arranged for Final Critique. This is a summary of our week together. It’s always a lot of fun. You can see a selection of the paintings and drawings below. I’d like to thank everyone for making my 21st year of teaching on Grand Manan Island a success. Why don’t you join us next year?
