Hard work and a lot of fun. Squinting, composing, live, and color vibrations. This was yesterday, today we start painting. The idea: each student does four projects. 2 in the morning 2 in the afternoon. Yesterday was pastel color studies, then going back to the same location same time we start painting. Tomorrow we edit those paintings with pastel and photos references, then on the last day we take those paints back to location for finishing touches.
The pic of the mountain is 3 minutes from my home.
