Charles Reid Workshop 2015 – Day 9


So it was plein air painting today (outside to you and me) and we were down in the center of Gloucester near the maritime museum.  It was a great spot and we all had a great time.    Not least we were near lots of restaurants so we had the opportunity for a leisurely lunch for once.   I took full advantage of this.

Charles chose this view of the old paint factory and ten pound island (did I remember that right?).  In the foreground was a handy rock and miscellaneous dock materials.

We hogged the end of the dock for the rest of the afternoon.   Many people managed two paintings and I filled in some time with sketches.

My effort – not great but painting outside is such great fun I don’t really care.
