Our first day was in the studio and we all tried painting from Keiko's photos. She did morning and afternoon demos and we tried the same scenes of Italy and San Clemente, CA. The next day we met at the harbor for some outdoor painting. We had a fun morning watching Keiko paint and then trying the working harbor scene ourselves. I've mentioned my painting of water and boats needs more practice...still does! In the afternoon we painted in another area at the harbor and I found something without boats and water to try, a more "industrial" scene that I enjoy. On the final morning we met at Averill Park which is a beautiful place. There is a stream with ducks, trees, and dappled light creating a wonderful mood. In the afternoon we went back to the studio to watch Keiko paint another demo. She's just so quick and amazing. Very inspiring!
