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.

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-
He always says,"Don't be creative, paint what you see!".
