Last week we had wonderful time in Minnesota painting out with Richard McKinley mentoring his "next level" Plein Air pastel group.
I do not have much time (normally) to paint Plein Air, therefore it was a very special treat - to get out to some place so beautiful, stay along with nature, paint and get some great advice from person so knowledgeable and talented as Richard.
I did a lot of quick sketches and even managed to finish one or two more complex paintings. Plus as always took enormous amount of picture for future references.
So far I was painting, Jim had great time stacking some rocks here and there.
It was totally wonderful week and I'm already starting looking forward to repeat it sometime.
But now have to get ready some show entries and whatever else I need to get ready for our upcoming trip to Carmel California next month. I only hope for the good weather.
