Thank you very much Ana, Ann, Jessica for you encouragement! I learned a lot from the workshop and also from plein aire. Great Nature is the best teacher I believe.

Ann, we can find many places like this. Let's go any time.

I love all the paintings you've done at this workshop, Laura - you are progressing by leaps & bounds!

This is my favorite of your paintings ! We need to find a barn around here to paint.

This is a great study. Your brush strokes show that you are in charge. Very good!

Okay, thank Laura.

Michael, Yellow Lemon rather than Yellow Light.

Michael, I have been waiting for your comment! :)

We used: Yellow Light, Yellow Ochre, Red Light, Alizarin Crimson, Cerulean Blue and Ultramarine Blue (and white, of course). Bryan used Vermillion as his red, but I didn't have any, so I used Red Light instead. The colors in the photo are a little less vivid than in the painting, but they are still not very intense.

Bryan is a very good teacher, and he is very encouraging while giving good suggestions. For this subject, I did not do any underpainting, I just applied thick paint directly onto the canvas. Bryan did that in his examples before, so I did the same thing here. I am not sure what I should do in the future. The main objective I had in the workshop was to put the color down and leave it alone, to keep it fresh.
