Capitol Plein Air: Bogle Winery

We began this day of the workshop with a demos and mini-lectures on using color and brushwork to describe form, rather than describing  it from a tonalist approach. It's so very interesting to explore both ends of the painting spectrum.  

A beautiful place to learn and practice plein air painting in the Delta
We enjoyed each other's company, laughed alot and worked hard.  Nothing like a good picnic lunch to revive the painting spirit and keep us going for the rest of the day.  

Lunch time demo by Elio.

After a full day of painting, we headed over to the Dinky Diner in Clarksburg
where Elio began a sunset demo.
Fact or Fiction: Humphrey the Whale really was seen in the Delta waters--AGAIN. 

Elio's demo really was a beautiful, vivid statement of color, brushwork, and creative artistic expression.
