Good Book!

Good Book!

8x8in oil on canvas board  125.

The Plein Air Painters of Southern New Mexico (PAPSNM) were invited to the Mesilla Bosque yesterday morning to join a varied group of exhibitions. I was painting the wonderful adobe buildings when I saw this gentleman who was fully engrossed in his book. It was fun doing this quick study and afterwards I managed to get a couple of different women in at the back of him. Everyone is moving in a situation like this so I think it is an excellent memory exercise.
I remember at art school we had a course where we had to study the model in one room and then go and paint from our memory in another room.
As you can imagine - this was a complete break from the roses and very brave of me to show you something not quite up to par.
