There is a tent they use for events which I was quite partial too. Here is a sketches from the north side, trying to get the effect of the light coming through the cloth.

  1. There is a small composition by Manet in the collection of the Frye Museum in Seattle that is very similar to the painting “Road in the Woods”. I like your treatment very much.

  2. We are staying at Castello di Reschio to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary next week! I am anxious to see your beautiful works in “life” form. Thank you for sharing,

  3. Maybe I’ve missed it somewhere on your site. But could you offer a little explanation on the color and application method used to tone your plein air panels? Thanks.
