I had intended to post daily updates live from the workshop but I had forgotten by Google 2 step verification codes so I couldn't access my blog. Usually the codes are sent by text but my phone had to be kept on airplane mode while outside of the US. Lesson learned!

We painted on the beach of St. Maarten. We took a tour of St. Thomas and painted together at the highest point...Mountaintop. The view was spectacular. We also visited Antigua and the Dominican Republic. Everyone embraced the quick field study approach to plein air which was needed in the hot and humid and sometimes windy conditions. I was so excited to see the wonderful work of the artists in the group!

We also worked on painting sky studies and keeping a sketch travel journal. I especially enjoyed working on my sketchbook and I will share it in a future post.
It was a great week with great new friends. My husband joined me this time and he enjoyed being my sharp and all around helper. It was great to have him share this experience and we hope to do another art trip next year!
