I had intended to do an ink drawing and drop in color, but I left the ink at home. Plan two, do a small piece of part of one of the buildings. I wasn't happy with the results. I looked around and decided this stately old Sycamore made a fitting subject. Without rain to strip the trees bare, many still have fall foliage clinging to their branches. Mary
And here are some snapshots of unfinished paintings showing what we accomplished (in spite of the hardships). Please visit again when the finished paintings are presented.
I was rather ambitious in trying to paint the whole building, as I couldn't stay for long enough to finish it on site! Hopefully I'll get time to put in the finishing touches and repost it. Sylvia
