Last outdoor class – Charles river

Not a great finale.  We trooped down to the river and perched ourselves on a park bench facing the John Weeks bridge.  The preliminary sketch went well but I struggled from the outset, the colors were wrong and I had trouble unifying the tree with the bridge. 

Photo of the scene cropped roughly to the size of the painting.    Yes my chimneys are too short.

Preliminary sketch.   I chickened out of putting the boat in.
