I got the umbrella on Amazon here.

Out in the gardens a live model in period costume set up for those wishing to paint the figure. I admire those artists who can paint the live model! There were some very talented artists at this festival. My group spread out to paint flowers....the Landscape in Bloom! Until the rain came back with a vengeance. This was it. I have no pictures because it was torrential rain and I was working at keeping dry! We all made our way back to the bus for the ride back to Wexford Town. Despite the challenging weather it really was a fun day. It was such a pleasure to share the wonders of pastel with a group of enthusiastic artists!

Painting notes: I was also drawn to the interesting green barns and outbuildings. I usually don't paint structures but I couldn't resist painting from some of the photos I took at Woodville House. There were bee hives in the area where I decided to paint and I didn't know until the gardener pointed them out.....hence the painting's title 'Watch Out for Bees'
