En plein ruelle
Last weekend I attended Jose De Juan's first workshop. It had been a very long time since I painted in oils, and I never painted in oils on location. Jose is a talented painter, and he has a large store of painting wisdom, collected from others and assembled from his own experience. I learned some stuff, and I'm reasonably happy with what I painted. It was pretty wonderful standing out there in the gloom and drizzle, surrounded by freight cars and graffiti writers, struggling to catch light and colors and make a painting.
