Day three of he workshop with Derek Penix and it was plein air painting. Thankfully the weather cooperated with a bit of wind. It was a bit chilly when not in the sun but I enjoyed sitting in the sun while he created.
It is amazing how he looks at things, sees the light and dark and starts swiping on color to create.
I know it's blurry but this is the final tree he did in a couple of hours.
Side note: I had to boogie out of actually painting plein air to head home and get ready for our evening out the the DVIS Monarch Ball. The plan was a dress and pumps but my ankles have been bothering me and the knee was just still too wobbly so flats and fancy pants and I was ready. We danced, yes I danced with The Hubby. I told him no spinning and twirling but he didn't hear so I spun and twirled to the best of my knee would do. Unfortunately, a neighboring man with heels on his shoes stopped all the dancing when he CRUSHED the top of my foot. I know it's hard to see but the top of my foot is now green, orange, red, rust, blue and black.
