4 Paintings from Jason Sacran's workshop.

Day One.  This was done after a morning lecture and demo.  We had some bright sunlight that afternoon at the Arboretum.  This was one that I came within an inch of wiping.  
Day Three Afternoon painting.  I have scrapped those cars twice since I've been home.  Luckily I had a decent photo for reference.  Lucky Jason was already on his way to CA or I would have been trying to get HELP!!  I had Derald to critique, so I think I did okay.  I have added some support legs to the water tower and a few sky holes, shortened the stop sign (as Derald said it was 12 foot tall), darkened the far building and added highlight areas along the wall of the left far wall.  Using Viridian I have improved all the greens too.  

Day Three nocturne painting.  What a blast we all had painting Sunday evening in Overland Park.  Being so dark, it was hard to get a decent photo of this painting.  It was so very helpful to have a paint along with Jason on this part of the workshop.  He had some great techniques to share on this last evening of nocturnal painting.  I have tried this before but I will say, having his instruction made it so much better.  This is something I will definitely be doing again soon.  The Airstream is screaming to be painted with the reflections of the street lights!

Day Two Painting in the Arboretum.  This one was fun, and I think I improved it today in the studio.    We had great weather, and dodged the rain.
