Our first day in Class (Bay View, MI) we sketched in front of the Memorial Chapel.
(Outdoors, of course). Then I sat in front of a Pipe-Railing beside some flowers.
The third picture is a practice of fences, flowers, and rocks.
We only had to paint "inside" one day--because of the rain and wind (and cool).
I always need to practice "looseness" (in painting, that is :-)
