'The Meadow by the Sea'. 5x7. Pastel. Karen Margulis
I woke up to the cooing of doves outside my window. I felt like I was in a fairy tale. I was staying in a 300 year old French manor house in the middle of the picture perfect countryside of Normandy. It was our first painting day and I couldn't wait!
Breakfast was wonderful...eggs, potatoes, toast, fruit. We were ready for a day of painting! After breakfast Stan started the day with an inspiring talk and two demos. He did a great bull painting! We are surrounded with cows and bulls here.
I set up behind the house and painted the pastures. I loved being able to see the English Channel in the distance. I did 5 quick studies. After lunch it was my turn! I did a demo for the group in the garden. It was so much fun to share with everyone! ( more photos coming)
In the afternoon I made a video tour of the manor house we are staying in, I will add it to tomorrow's post. It I taking forever to upload and it is late! We have another big day tomorrow!
