Edgewater, NJ 8.08.2010

"The Binghamton Ferry" 6" x 12"

My first painting outing of the year- Sunday morning painting in NJ with my classmate Marina, her husband, and Sal.

What I learned from this outing:

1. Do not set up in the sun in August even if you have a sun hat on.
2. Do not wear tight jeans and black shoes.
3. Bring purple paint/ invest in a good purple paint (perhaps Schmincke cobalt violet light & deep?).
4. Bring snacks and water.
5. I need to make my compositions better, maybe do sketches on paper first then start painting.

W.I.P. Esteban and Leticia

Here is a work in progress of the painting I am currently working on. I took this photo at the end of week one of a three week pose. This is the first time (I think) that I am painting 2 models interacting this closely, so I'm definitely going to need the 2 more weeks to finish this up.

Apologies for the crappy photo.

On Friday we had a little party for my teacher's 79th birthday so I thought it would be funny to have one of his sayings put on a cake-
for my teacher's birthday
He always says,"Don't be creative, paint what you see!".
