Grand Manan Island – Wednesday!

IMG_2416

I demonstrated this morning by the ‘haul-up’, the boatyard at Ingall’s Head. I didn’t complete a painting but did two small studies, one in colour and a value study in sepia. Both the Birds and the Bees attended.

What is a Bee? The Bees are not all the same in our workshop. All have some prior experience and none are complete beginners. Some, however, aren’t experienced with painting outdoors. Some have met me for the first time and are interested in how I present the basics. Some have taken other classes but fundamentals weren’t stressed. No two Bees are alike.

Our Birds are more experienced and several have been to Grand Manan Island, or other destinations, with me prior to this trip.

It was sunny and hot today although there’s always a nice fresh breeze off the water. We settled in and got to work.

Most of our group are staying at the Marathon Inn in North Head this year. We held our critique at the Inn after a full day by the water. In addition to the critique, I gave a brief presentation on focal points in painting. Following that, we did the critique in two batches and the Birds and the Bees were mixed together.

Thanks for your likes and comments. Tomorrow, we’re off to Seal Cove!
